Hello, my name is Laurie Blair. I am a certified school counselor, and 2015-2016 is my 20th year in education. I have been a classroom teacher (Theatre Arts, Speech, Teen Leadership, 7th grade Science), a middle school counselor, a program coordinator (teen parent program and child care center for high school students), and a CTE counselor, in addition to being a qualified high school counselor.
I grew up in the area, graduating from Rains High School with honors in 1987, then graduated from the former East Texas State University in Commerce. I received a B.S. degree in Radio Television in 1993, and then received my teaching certification from there as well in 1995. I received my Masters in Counseling, specializing in school counseling, in 2001 after ETSU became Texas A&M Commerce.
I am married and have three sons, ages 16, 17, and 22. I make every attempt to treat students as I would my own children. Their emotional, social, and educational development are my priorities. If you ever have any questions or concerns about your child or their progress, please don't hesitate to contact me.
