School Counselor


Welcome Emerson Eagles!! My name is Deborah Diaz.  I am one of the counselors at Emerson Middle School. I support students in the 8th grade and 6th graders last names A-L.  Yet, I am always available to all students.  I have had the pleasure of working at Emerson for going on 5 years.


I am a graduate from the Pomona Unified School District just like all of you guys will hopefully be.  I graduated from Garey High School “Go Vikings”.  I furthered my education by getting an Associate’s Degree from Mt. San Antonio College, Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Cal Poly Pomona and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling from University of La Verne.


In my spare time I like to do a little bit of everything yet, my biggest passion is traveling everywhere in this amazing world.  I enjoy spending time with my awesome nieces and nephews, reading, hiking, cooking, been surrounded by nature, museums, etc.  I love life!! And I love laughing!!







Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  My name is Miriam Zavala and I'm one of the Counselors at Emerson Middle School in Pomona, Ca. I serve 6th grade students last names from M-Z & the entire 7th grade body. This is my fourth year at Emerson Middle School and I love it!
I have a Master's Degree in Counseling & Guidance from Cal State San Bernardino and  a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Cal Poly Pomona. I graduated from Corona High School in 2009 I used to run track and field, cross country and was on the dance team there.
