About Our Counselor
My name is Anna Urias, the school counselor at QRE. It’s a pleasure to be a part of the Quail family since 2019 and MUSD since 2012. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education at the University of Arizona and was a 3rd grade teacher for five years. While I was teaching, I attended the Tucson extended campus of Northern Arizona University and graduated with a Master's Degree in School Counseling. I was the school counselor at Thornydale Elementary for 6 years and chose QRE as my new home. I also have a Master’s Degree in Education Leadership and serve as a leader within the school and district. I am a member of the Arizona School Counselors Association and the American School Counselors Association. All MUSD school counselor programs follow the American School Counselor Association Standards: Mindset and Behaviors for Student Success.
I am committed to helping children academically and socially, as well as assisting them to set and accomplish behavioral goals. My goal each year is to connect and build a rapport with every student by learning ALL their names, teaching counseling lessons, and being an advocate for all students. My favorite part of my job is teaching counseling classes to every student every other week.
In addition to being a School Counselor, I enjoy spending time with my fiancée and our 2 children, traveling with family, watching movies, reading books, collecting SpongeBobs, watching sports like baseball and football, and being a dedicated University of Arizona fan.
Each day I look forward to working with all the students, parents, and staff at Quail Run Elementary School! We are covey that works together to take care of each other!
