MTHS’s newest counselor, Evan Hatch, was hired in early August. Since then, he’s already gotten used to his office and met some of the students he’ll be working with. Hatch graduated from Western Washington University and was a counselor and women’s soccer coach at Cedarcrest High School before becoming a Hawk.

Q. How did you find out about the open counselor position at Mountlake Terrace High School and why were you interested?

A. District websites are updated almost every day throughout the summer, and I was excited to see a counseling position posted at Terrace. I grew up just a few miles away, and Terrace feels like home.

Q. What do you like to do in your free time?

A. I like to hike, camp, do yoga, and spend time with family and friends. My wife is my best friend, and she’s the coolest person ever.

Q. Why did you want to become a school counselor?

A. When I was in college, I realized that I should have met with and trusted my high school counselor more. It would have helped me gain perspective and developed personal goals as I graduated high school and moved on to another chapter of life. My hope is that I am the type of school counselor that people feel comfortable talking to.

Q. Even though we’ve just met you, what is something really interesting that people should know about you?

A. I drive a 1999 yellow Beetle. It even has a little yellow flower stuck in the dashboard. I get funny looks from people all the time. The truth is that it’s my wife’s car from before we were married, but it’s fun to let people think that I purposefully chose to buy and drive that car. Now my secret is out!

Q. What are some things you are looking forward to at MTHS?

A. The staff and the students that I have met so far have been wonderfully welcoming. More than anything, I’m looking forward to meeting everyone, and helping to make MTHS an even better place.
