Questions About Gender Identity

People tend to use the terms “sex” and “gender” interchangeably. But, while connected, the two terms are not equivalent. Generally, we assign a newborn’s sex as either male or female based on the baby’s genitals. A person’s gender is the complex interrelationship between three dimensions: body, identity, and social gender. For more information, check out this article on Gender Spectrum.

Counselor Welcome

Counselor's Corner

Hello from your new school counselor!

My name is McKenzie Campana and I am overjoyed to join FUSD and the Niles community for the 2021/2022 school year! Born and raised in Fremont, I feel honored to serve students and families in my hometown. I attended Chadbourne, Hopkins and Mission San Jose before pursuing my B.S. in Business Administration at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and M.A. in Counseling & Guidance (including the PPS School Counseling Credential) at San Jose State University. I have experience working with secondary and post-secondary students, but this will be my first year working with elementary. I would love to get to know you and your student(s) as I settle in at Niles, so please don’t be a stranger!

We have some exciting news to announce...

This is the first year that Niles Elementary has a full-time school counselor on staff! This means that Niles' students and families have access to a school counselor (virtually and in-person) five days a week, Monday-Friday. Please visit my "Contact Information" page to learn about different ways to get in touch with me. 

Life update from Ms. Campana...

My husband and I will be expecting our first child in March 2022! I will be taking maternity leave through the end of the 21/22 school year. Niles will have a substitute counselor during my absence (Ms. Novello) and our City of Fremont Youth and Family Services (YFS) Counselor Intern will continue to visit campus on Thursdays/Fridays to serve a caseload of Niles students. If you would like to inquire about counseling support for your child while I am on leave, please reach out to Principal Brumbaugh.
