Alexis Gibson

Ms Gibson YIS

Youth Intervention Specialist

Ext. 62109

Hi! I'm Alexis Gibson. I am filled with enthusiasm to be joining Mt. Eden as your youth intervention specialist!  I am transitioning into this role after serving as an elementary school counselor for the past eight years-five being in Hayward Unified. I received a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications and eventually became a middle school Language Arts teacher. You may hear me reference Maya Angelou who has been an inspiration of hope in my life along with my mother. After receiving my Masters of Science degree in School Guidance and Counseling, I’ve developed and facilitated professional developments, parent workshops, Tier 1 school wide events and lessons that promote social-emotional growth for all students. Additionally, I am an advocate for student agency and founded my nationally award-winning Upstander’s Club in 2015.  I am currently a student in the Educational Leadership for Social Justice doctoral program. I challenge myself to bring the words of Ms. Angelou to life: “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”

Born and raised in the Ashland District of San Leandro, I attended all SLZUSD schools. I received my A.A. from Chabot College and later graduated from Cal. State Hayward with a B.A. in Sociology 2004. I later received my Teaching Credential, Masters Degree, and Admin. Credential from CSUEB. I came into education from corporate management at PEPSICO and realized my true calling was for the youth. Throughout my career I have worked with many at risk youth by way of Coaching/Mentoring, Group Home Counseling at Lincoln Child Center, and at Alameda County’s Juvenile Hall. I have worked in various capacities within HUSD for 7 years. I have taught Elementary, GED, and ESL students for all of that time. I have also served on SSC, SBDM, ILT, and FRA/HEA committees throughout my time in education and look forward to serving the community at Mt. Eden.



Terrance Christianson



Assistant Principal

Ext. 62106

Terrance Christianson began his career in education 15 years ago, while in college (Go Oregon ducks!), designing/obtaining funds for programs serving adjudicated youth, underprivileged students, and underserved populations. Terrance utilized his skill set once moving to Oakland, while building his networks in order to assure that each one of his students was served just as equally as the most privileged. Working at Hillside Academy(counseling enriched site) in Oakland was an eye opener and career builder, in order to set the strong foundations of Multi Tiered Systems of support for students. Terrance is trained heavily in Restorative Practices, Response to Intervention, and Youth empowerment. From working in Oakland at Hillside Academy to transitioning to Roots Middle School, and then to Phillips Academy (Non Public School), and the last 4 years at Berkeley High School, Terrance’s mission remains the same which is to empower ALL students to determine their futures. Terrance is driven by a desire to show that all students are capable of achieving, and has worked intentionally to align student supports with instructional priorities, leverage community assets and human resources in support of student success.


Terrance received his Undergraduate degree from the University of Oregon, as well as a Masters of Arts in School counseling with PPSC credential from Brandman, and a Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership/Administration with Preliminary credential from Brandman University.
