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!
