Christine Henninger, College Counselor

Christine Henninger has always known she wanted to counsel students. At 17, she filled out a survey asking where she wanted to be in 10 years. Her answer: "In 10 years, I hope to be a counselor back at Mitty."

 

Christine detoured with school counseling internships across California, and then spent two years as a college counselor at Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego. In 2017, less than 10 years after she wrote her answer to that survey question, Christine went back to Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, CA for the counseling job she had been dreaming about. She managed a caseload of 200 students, coordinated the annual Case Studies program, wrote hundreds of letters of recommendation, and coordinated Mitty's College Essay Support Program. But with the pandemic, family changes, and the opportunity to leave San Jose to be closer to family in Davis, the "dream job" changed a bit. Christine opted to leave Mitty at the end of this school year and is looking forward to focusing on a smaller caseload of students. 

 

Christine earned her bachelor's in Child Development and Psychology at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, and then earned her master's in school counseling and Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) K-12 School Counseling Credential from San Diego State University. When she's not dreaming about college counseling, Christine is busy being a big Boston sports fan (her daughter might be named after Tom Brady) and making friends with every dog she sees.
