COSA (Counselor on Special Assignment): Gina Zbikowski
Hello Eagles! This is my fifth year working in RBUSD and at Adams Middle School! You may be reading this and recognize my face, but not my name. The past four years I have known as "Ms. G" and this school year I will be transitioning to Mrs. Zbikowski or "Mrs. Z." I serve as Adams school COSA (Counselor on Special Assignment). As COSA, I am responsible for supporting our Title I student population, facilitating Student Success Team meetings, overseeing WatchDOGS and the PBIS Store, implementing student inventions, as well as other administrative duties such as campus supervision and student discipline. I grew up in Wildomar, CA and throughout my K-12 experience I participated in ASB, yearbook, Cheer, and a variety of clubs. I transferred from Mt. San Jacinto College and graduated from UCLA with my Bachelor’s degree in American Literature and Culture. I earned my Master's degree in Education with an Emphasis in Counseling and Pupil Personnel Services Credential from the University of Redlands. I love animals, traveling, cooking, crafting, and spending time with friends and family.
Note: Mrs. Zbikowski is on maternity leave and will return to Adams in October 2020.
