Gina Asaro, CPC Counselor
"Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle."
~Christian D. Larson
I'm a proud graduate of Sterling Heights High School. After graduating from Sterling, I went on and graduated with honors from Wayne State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education and a Master’s degree in Counseling.
My passion for the arts and the field of education lead me into a career in Art Education, where my first teaching position was at Carleton Middle School, the school I attended while a student within the Warren Consolidated Schools (WCS) district. I have taught art at all levels, at multiple buildings, within the district. After teaching art for almost 10 years, my career path took me in a different direction; I obtained a counseling position at Warren Mott High School. After 4 amazing years at Warren Mott, I made my way to the Career Prep Center (CPC), which is where I began my schooling many years’ prior, as a student in the Early Childhood Pre-school program.
Being the Counselor at CPC combines two of my biggest passions; working with kids and my involvement and interest in careers within the allied arts/industrial arts fields. As a school counselor, I work closely with students to help assist them, guide them and teach them to develop the necessary skills they need in order to be successful in all aspects of their life; personally, socially and academically, whether they are perusing higher education, employment within the skilled trades workforce, or both. I am available to assist and help students academically, by providing them with career and college information, as well as providing them with any help and support they may need due to social, emotional and/or personal struggles they may be facing.
My journey began at CPC many years ago, and all of the instruction and lessons I learned while a student in Warren Consolidated Schools and at Wayne State University, have brought me back to CPC to inspire, motivate and guide students to believe in and achieve all of their hopes, dreams and aspirations in life.
