School Counselor Interns - Yay!!

 We are very fortunate to have partnerships with area universities who provide us with counseling interns.  These interns are in their final semesters of becoming full-fledged school counselors, and come to us with a wealth of experience. The internship program not only provides an excellent training experience for our university students, it also allows us to offer more counseling services to students here at Lafayette. Read about our newest interns this semester:

My name is Jordan Albrite and I am completing the final semester of my Master’s in Education and Human Development at the George Washington University. Previously, I graduated from the College of William and Mary with a B.A. in Psychology and Religious Studies, with hopes of pursuing a career in counseling. Before beginning my graduate studies, I spent three years teaching STEM enrichment classes and camps around DC and Northern Virginia, and developed a passion for working in educational settings with elementary-aged students. After a year of gaining experience as a school counseling intern, I am excited and honored to complete my final internship experience with the wonderful community at Lafayette Elementary!

My name is Lenore Hoover and I am completing the final semester of my Master's degree in School Counseling at the Johns Hopkins University. I am a longtime educator, having taught at John Eaton early in my career and since then in Montgomery County as an Art Teacher at the secondary level. I've earned my national certification  & was recently recognized in Maryland as Career Art Educator. Throughout my career I've found creative ways to highlight the unique talents and strengths of all students. I'm thrilled to be a part of the Lafayette Elementary community which has a wonderful reputation for it's collaborative efforts on behalf of all students.
