Mrs. Laura Alms, School Counselor

   Hi, my name is Laura Alms.  I am a school counselor at Elberta Middle School.  This is my fourth year in this position.  Before moving into the school counseling position, I was a 4th grade teacher at EMS for 13 years.  I graduated from Foley High School, then attended the University of South Alabama. In 2008, I earned the National Board Certification for upper elementary teachers.  Then, I pursued a masters degree in school counseling.  I am currently working on an education specialist degree in school counseling from the University of West Alabama.  
   I am blessed to have a wonderful husband and two daughters.  Tracy and Lisa are both teachers at Elberta Elementary.  Tracy teaches first grade, and Lisa teaches second grade.  There is a lot of teacher talk when we all get together!  
   My favorite past time is going to the beach, camping, and just being outside.  I love exercising and practicing yoga.  These activities really sharpen my saw!
