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, and the community, and to work for the Phoenix Union High School District. This is my ninth year as a counselor, but I am not new to the educational field. Since 1996, I have taught different subjects and at different grade levels. I have 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; two of them attend the Phoenix Union High School District.
I see a lot of vibrant energy in our younger generation. As a counselor, I want to help our students focus that energy towards an effervescent future. Maryvale High School and our school district have 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 our student's ostentatious success.
“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.”
Winston Churchill“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.”
Maya Angelou“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” Bil Kleane
Coached: baseball, basketball, cross country, soccer, softball, track & field and continue coaching distance runners all year long.
I am in the Counseling Department Room # 54.
I am proficient in both English and Spanish.
My office hours are from 7:30 - 3:30 Monday - Friday. If these hours are conflicting with your work hours, please call or email me to make an appointment.
