Erica Gates Routa

My name is Erica Gates Routa, and I am one of the counselors at Northeast Middle School.

I started working as a counselor at NEMS in 2013 and before that worked at the University of Minnesota since 2002 developing after school programs for youth in Minneapolis and St. Paul through the Urban 4-H program. I received a B.A. in Psychology and an M.A. in Educational Psychology (Counseling and Student Personnel) from the University of Minnesota and have a K-12 school counselor license through the state of Minnesota.

I enjoy collaborating with students, parents, and teachers to support young people’s academic, career, and personal/social needs and goals. My goal is to be an advocate and build a system of support for students to be successful in school, fulfill their future goals, and find a passion for life and learning.
