Montlake Elementary


School Counselor

Ella Ares

I am the counselor at Montlake Elementary and John Muir Elementary. I was born in the Philippines and immigrated to the United States in 2013 along with my family when I was 18 years old. I graduated from Seattle University in June 2022 with a Masters of Arts in Education for School Counseling, and started working at SPS. I have been working with children since 2017 as a piano teacher and an after school program counselor.
