My name is Edin Barrera. It’s an honor and a blessing that I have been missioned to Cristo Rey High School by my Jesuit provincial. I’m currently entering my seventh year as a Jesuit seminarian in the Society of Jesus.
Before coming to Sacramento, I had the honor to work as a clinical counselor in Chicago. My work there consisted in accompanying couples, teenagers, and victims of domestic violence in coping with separation, divorce, anxiety, and depression. I’m blessed that I have arrived to a wonderful community that is committed to the transformation and education of students.
As an immigrant, counselor, and as a religious man preparing for the priesthood, it is my desire and hope that we can form a safe space of belonging, understanding, and transformation. Although, I will be working directly with freshman and sophomores; other grades are welcome to chat with me. Our counseling office will always be open. Please feel free to call me anytime at 916-733-2660 x 1030.

I was born and raised in Northern California, and am the youngest of four daughters and was the first in my family to attend college and earn a degree. I started my journey in community college and earned an Associate’s degree in Criminal Justice. After transferring, I earned a Bachelor’s in Sociology and a Master’s in School Counseling. I have been a school counselor since 2002, where I started out in public schools in California. My career has been spent in public, private, foreign and US based high schools helping students plan and prepare for college and life after high school. I currently live in Sacramento with my husband and two children (ages 2 and 7) and I am looking forward to supporting the mission of Cristo Rey and making college a goal for all students.

Dear Cristo Rey Community, it is an honor to continue my work at Cristo Rey HS.
My family migrated to the United States to work in the central valley farms of California since I was one month old. Through my childhood and adolescence I lived in Migrant Camps and travel every year between the U.S. and Mexico, due to my parents work. Although I had to overcome many obstacles during that time, I was fortunate to have mentors that guided and believed in my personal and academic potential, and who helped me achieve my dream to be the first in my family to attend college. I attended the University of California Davis, where I obtained a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and Spanish.
I have worked in the promotion of education for over ten years. During this time, I had the pleasure to work with a diverse group of individuals in college counseling, recruitment, and teaching, particularly first generation, low-income students. I am in my last year of graduate school, completing a master’s degree in School Counseling with a PPS credential.

I have been at Cristo Rey High School Sacramento since the beginning and during this time I have served as the High Schools Office Manager/Registrar. In these positions, I have been able to interact with students and their families. My communication and bilingual skills have allowed me to better serve our community and serve as the parent liaison to our families. After ten years in the Front Office I moved into the Counseling Associate /Registrar position. I look forward to this new chapter in my Cristo Rey career.
