Ortega, Patricia

Welcome to Lee Elementary School!
‚ÄčCollege readiness

Hi, my name is Pat Ortega and I am excited to be the school counselor for Lee Elementary's students, grades Pre-K to 5th. As the school counselor, I take part in preparing our students in their academic endeavors, facilitating and enhancing the students' potential for academic achievement. Along with the help of the teachers, parents or guardians, and the community, we can ensure that our students will have access to and will be well prepared with the knowledge and skills needed to achieve their academic goals and become productive members of society.

Building our children's character
I am a proud UTEP Miner, having received both a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters degree from the University of Texas at El Paso and am certified as an educator and maintained my certification in Educational Psychology and Counseling. I then continued my education acquiring a Principal Certification in 2006. This will be my 12th year as a school counselor.

If you require my assistance, please feel free to contact me anytime between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at (915) 236-5675 or send me an email at portega@episd.org.

Are you in step?
