Mrs. Lauren Morgan
Hello! I am Lauren Morgan and I am the school counselor at Wills Point Primary School. I grew up in Richardson, Texas.
I began to develop my love for school counseling while I was in school at Yale Elementary. My counselor's name was Mrs. Brehm and she was one of my favorite people in the building. I also met my husband when we were just kindergarteners, there. I graduated from Berkner High School. I then went on to get my bachelor's degree in communication disorders with a minor in American Sign Language from Oklahoma State University, home of the Cowboys and America's Brightest Orange. From there, I headed to Lubbock to attend Lubbock Christian University, which is where I got my master's degree in school counseling.
While in Lubbock, I went through an Alternative Certification Program in order to become a teacher. I taught 3rd grade for one year in Brownfield, TX, a small town southwest of Lubbock. I moved back to the DFW area in 2015 and taught 2nd grade for one year in Garland at Bradfield Elementary. I got married in 2016 to my wonderfully supportive husband and we have two cats, Sherlock and Sebastian. This will be my third year as a counselor at Wills Point Primary.
I love all things Harry Potter, and enjoy spending time outside, especially at White Rock Lake. I also like drawing, painting, reading, doing puzzles, and playing board games, and love to utilize these pastimes with students who are receiving counseling services from me. I play the ukulele, and frequently go to Rangers games. My office has a tank of hermit crabs who love digging in their sand and hiding from people during the day, but when I can get to them, students enjoy getting to hold them and practice being patient.
I have enjoyed every minute of the time I've had so far with your primary school students and am very excited to be back at Wills Point Primary! I can't wait to see what the coming school year brings.
Please feel free to contact me at the school with any comments, questions, or concerns about the counseling program. I will return notes, emails, and phone calls as promptly as I can!
