MEET THE COUNSELOR
Hello! My name is Angie House and I am very excited to be the new counselor at Lewisburg Elementary School. I am a native Texan, but I have lived in Olive Branch, MS since 2004. I started my educational journey in the classroom back in 2000, and in 2014 I received my Masters in School Counseling. I have served as a school counselor for Olive Branch High School and for Pleasant Hill Elementary School, Lewisburg Elementary, and now Lewisburg Intermediate.
I offer individual, group, and classroom guidance for a variety of concerns. These concerns could include reasons such as: stress, anxiety, family changes, bullying, and more. If students need a more in- depth ongoing counseling sessions, then outside referrals are available.
