Ms. Teresa Valisto

I am a member of the Ak-Chin Indian Community. I am married to Benjamin Valisto a member of the Tohono O'odham Nation. We have 2 daughters, Kayla Valisto and Bren Valisto. Myself and my daughters are graduates of Maricopa High School.  I have been working as the Ak-Chin Student Counselor for 23 years. I started working in September of 1996 and have seen many changes over the years. I am here to assist students and the staff so that our students can be more successful in their education.  I enjoy my job working with the student of the Ak-Chin Indian Community. They are like my own children and I am here for them.  I also enjoy working with the staff at MHS and hope to be here for a few more years. I appreciate that the district has allowed our staff to work in the school with our students and hope we can continue this for future students.
