Emily Picture

Hello! My name is Emily Spencer. I am the Mary Walker High School counselor. I am a first year school counselor. I graduated from Whitworth University last year with my master's in school counseling, and this is my 6th year working in education. I completed my practicum and internship this past year and a half at Riverside School District. Gaining rural experience at Riverside has fueled a passion in me to serve the Mary Walker School District and community. I completed my educational journey throughout Spokane in both private and public school settings. 

 It is my goal to advocate for, and continually help build a safe space for students where they feel accepted, encouraged, supported, challenged, and cared for in all areas of their lives, both in and outside of school.
