Laura Northcutt » Counselor

Counselor

WELCOME to Turner Prekindergarten Academy. 

 

I am Laura Northcutt and I am the school counselor on our campus.  I am so thrilled that you have taken the opportunity to share your child with us this school year.  Prekindergarten is one of my favorite grades to work with.  The students are like sponges ready to absorb so much knowledge.   It truly is where the love of learning begins. 

 

My role is to help guide them through the process as an additional support to the classroom teacher.  This involves going into the classrooms and  presenting guidance lessons on several different topics such as character development, conflict resolution, personal safety choices, plus many more.  I also work with children in small groups and on an individual basis as needed. 

 

This is my 15th year in education and 7th year as a school counselor, prior to that I taught various grade levels at the elementary level.  I graduated from Texas A & M, Whoop, Go Aggies!!!  I am married and have 3 cute kids: a 3rd grader, a 1st grader, and a 4 year old.  I understand all about how busy families can be and little children.  For fun I enjoying spending time with my family playing outside, hiking, reading, cooking, and starting a bazillion projects.
