    How may I help you?

    Hello, my name is Mario E. López.  I come from Turicachi Sonora, Mexico. It’s a privilege and an honor to be given the opportunity to serve the Maryvale High School students, community, and to work for the Phoenix Union High School District.  This is my fifth year as a counselor, but I am not new to the educational field.  Since 1996 I have taught different subjects and in different grade levels. I am retired from the US military (Persian Gulf War Veteran), and for the past thirty years, I have enjoyed coaching different sports.   I have a wonderful wife and four awesome children in which one of them is old enough to attend the Phoenix Union High School District.

    I see a lot of vibrant energy in our young generation.  As a counselor I want to help our students focus that energy towards an effervescent future.   Maryvale High School and our school district has a lot to offer our students.  I believe that with all the staff here at Maryvale High School, parents, and support from our school district pulling together exhausting all available resources will quantify to our student's ostentatious success.
