"After struggling with learning issues since I began my school career, I cannot explain the relief that I had when Mrs. Davanzo was my teacher and counselor. When most counselors ask you a question that they know the answer to or ask you to do something, Mrs. Davanzo asks you questions about your life that are thought provoking and have purpose to them; she encourages you to think outside of the box - and this is what got me where I am today at the school I want to be at, doing what I want to do! Mrs. Davanzo trusts that if she holds her students to the upmost standards, they will meet her there. Mrs. Davanzo is the most amazing teacher and counselor that I have ever had, she teaches your mind and spirit together, and the knowledge that she helps you find within yourself sticks with you, and you remember it. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to learn from and be mentored by Nita Davanzo."
- Sofia N. (High School Senior)
"Nita is an absolute Godsend! Couldn't have navigated the wild road of college applications, scholarships, grants and loans without her. Her personal one on one attention, customized college search and hand holding during the application has been priceless. Highly recommend her, not only is she a lovely person, she is literally worth every penny of your investment."
- Amy R. (Parent of High School Senior)
"Nita is one of the most inspirational, loving mentors / teachers / counselor that I have had the honor of learning from. What makes Nita a spectacular college counselor is that she truly believes in her students and will do whatever it takes to help and support them. She is a humble, open, and serene individual who will no doubt leave a mark in your life."
- Summer C. (College Sophomore)
"I have seen Nita June work with students for about 5 years. She had worked with all kinds of students. She connected with students that other teachers couldn't reach. She is down to earth and easily finds something in common with the student and what was difficult becomes easier and there is a willingness to learn. Both of my kids worked with her and learned a lot and also were inspired to teach and share education. Can't say enough good things about this gentle soul and sunshine."
- Lynn N. (Parent of High School Senior and Junior)
