A-K: Tiffany Straight
Hi, everyone. I’m the school counselor for students whose last name begins with the letters A - K. I am honored to be a part of the Parras Panthers family, and I’m excited to support students through their middle school journey. The South Bay has been my home for a long time. After graduating from Narbonne High School, I attended Harbor Community College and then Cal State, Dominguez Hills. I obtained both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from Cal State, Dominguez Hills. I also hold a Pupil Personnel Services Credential. I started my career as a school counselor in 1997, and I joined the RBUSD staff in 2007. When I am not working with RBUSD students and families, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family. You can reach me at (310) 798-8616 ex. 3712 or [email protected].
