Hello! My name is Elena Kuzmenko, and I will be your new school psychologist. This is my fifth year in the field, and I am very much looking forward to new adventures at North Beach SD!
A little bit of background about me: I live in Vancouver, but grew up in Portland and lived there until five years ago. I have a cat child (see below), 10 siblings (I'm the baby), around 23-25 nieces and nephews, and six great nieces and nephews (I have stopped counting a while ago, so the number may be off!).
I also have three nephews living with me, for several years now. Because the kids and I have summers off, while their mom works, guess who gets to chauffeur them around? ;)
We went on many adventures this summer (see below)!
