Hi! My name is Stephanie Reed and I am the School Counselor here at Lake Arthur Elementary. I obtained my undergraduate and master’s degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. I began my career in education as a middle school teacher prior to becoming a school counselor.
An elementary counselor has many duties to carry out during the school year. Some of those duties are Red Ribbon Week (Drug Awareness Week) which takes place in October; The school counselor coordinates the Student of the Year process; Screens students who have been referred to the School Building Level Committee for learning, behavior, or health problems as well as screening those students who may qualify for the Gifted Program; Serves as the school test coordinator for testing in the spring; and throughout the year, individual students who are in need of counseling. Lessons are also taught to address three areas, which are Social/Emotional, Academic and Careers.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to call the school at 774-3323.
I look forward to working with you and your children this school year!
