Saba Wong

School Counselor

“I am inspired by how resilient children can be.”
Saba joined the FCS faculty in the 2019-20 school year, having relocated from the Philadelphia area, where she was an individual and family therapist for children ages 9 to 12 and worked as a school therapist at elementary charter schools. Saba has worked with students who have experienced trauma as well as students with behavioral and emotional needs, she likes to help children practice a growth mindset: “While they may not be able to do something yet, it is possible as long as they try,” she explains. In her spare time, Saba enjoys hiking and spending time with family and friends, which often involves flying back and forth between California and the East Coast.
