My name is Amy Perdigone-Minkeand I am the ES Counselor at AIS. Fueled by compassion, curiosity, and the desire to help all students succeed, this is my sixteenth year working in education.
My education career started in Los Angeles, California, where I earned a BA in Sociology and minored in Education at UCLA. I have an MS in School Counseling with a Pupil Personnel Credential (PPSC) from SFSU. I have enjoyed school counseling in both the high school and elementary school settings from California to Saudia Arabia.
This is my third year working at AIS where I am excited to continue getting to know and serve our dynamic and ever-changing community. I am interested in Third Culture Kids (TCK) and learning more about Mindfulness in the classroom. To help stay abreast of the current school counseling trends and research, I am a member of both ISCA (International School Counselor Association) and the ASCA (American School Counselor Association) and attend conferences sponsored by these organizations.
Even Yehuda is not only the city where I work, but it is also where live and enjoy calling home with my one-year-old daughter and husband. I care deeply about the community I serve and my door is always open to students and families.
