August 20, 2019

Hi! I am Tanja Warnick, the new GT Social Emotional Learning Counselor. I am thrilled to be here at Coronado! I started out as an elementary school counselor in the Washington DC area. Since moving to Colorado, I have held various positions in education including dropout prevention in Commerce City, a home visitor for Jeffco Public Schools and most recently, working with English language learner’s kindergarten through 8th grade.

I will split my time as the Gifted and Talented Counselor between Coronado and Hackberry Hill Elementary. I will be at Coronado on Tuesdays and Thursdays, all day. I will be supporting students in their individual growth and I will be working with students on building the skills necessary in fostering community. I love helping teach life skills that will make our students the peaceful and capable adults of the future.

Kind Regards,

Tanja Warnick
