Counselor's Corner

Samantha Ashford

I am one of the school counselors at Oak Grove Middle School and I have been with MDUSD since 2016. I have a Master's Degree in Marriage Family Therapy with an emphasis in School Counseling from CACREP Accredited Counseling Program at San Francisco State University. 

Outside of work, I enjoy time with my cats, family and friends.  I have two handsome furbabies, Taz and LB. To me, nothing is better than being outdoors hiking, camping, sporting events (Go Giants & Niners!!), live performances, Disneyland and traveling to any destination with sandy beaches. 

It is an honor to have the opportunity to work with the students, families, and staff at Oak Grove Middle School! 

Lets have a fantastic year Wildcats!

Annie Hagglund

Hello Wildcats!! My name is Annie Hagglund :) I'm one of your school counselors here at Oak Grove Middle School. This is my 5th year as a counselor in the Mt. Diablo USD. I also grew up in this district; K-12th MDUSD strong! Before coming to Oak Grove I was a counselor at Monte Gardens Elementary School. 

I have a Bachelors Degree in Communication and Psychology, a Masters Degree in Educational Psychology, a PPS credential in School Counseling, and I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA).

When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with my family- I have a 6-year old son and a 9-year old daughter. I also like to hang out with friends, watch movies, and travel. I lived in Dubai for 4 years!

Despite the challenges we face this year, I am committed to helping you have a positive school experience. Reach out if you need help. I'm looking forward to getting to know you! Let's make it a great year!!
