Rose Davalos has an open-door policy.

She’s only occupied her office in South Albany High School since October, but she’s already made it hers.

College posters for Oregon State University and University of Oregon hang from the wall next to folders of federal-aid forms, free for the taking, and explanatory sheets detailing graduation requirements

There’s a table with four chairs, plenty of space to spread out and work on GPA calculations, and the whole room feels tucked away from the rest of the school — a safe space.
