    Hope Donato, Counselor for Students Last Name A-G

    image of Hope DonatoI was born and raised in an awfully hot city in Arizona and enlisted in the Air Force at 21. While stationed in South Korea, I became a DOD certified interpersonal violence survivor advocate. I left the military and went to Portland State University (PSU) where I studied Community Development. My own experience as a young person coupled with my advocacy work has led me to pursue youth advocacy through school counseling.

    I love learning about the strengths that make each of us unique and leaning into those strengths to support youth’s continued growth and development. My goal is to create space for all students to be their true selves through listening, understanding, and validating their experiences. In collaboration we can facilitate the pursuit of their dreams and visions!


    Anthony Malaki, Counselor for Students Last Name H-O

    Image of Anthony MalakiAloha! My name is Anthony Malaki and I’m thrilled to be a part of the amazing Lincoln High School Team. I grew up on the beautiful island of Oahu and have set roots here in Seattle after attending WSU, (Go Cougs!). Professionally, I’ve been a counselor in Seattle Schools since 2002. My previous schools have been Meany, Salmon Bay, and most recently Mercer International Middle School. I bring a deep passion for partnering with students, families, and teachers to actualize a student’s hopes and dreams. As a son and father, I’ve come to realize that we are living our ancestors unfulfilled wildest dreams. We owe it to them to live up to our fullest potential.

    When I’m not at school, you might see me cheering on my son and daughter’s sports teams and musical theatre performances, traveling with my ‘ohana, and rooting on my beloved Seahawks and Cougs.
