Meet the counselor:)
My name is Lori Johnson and I am honored to be the school counselor for Rivercrest Elementary for the 2021-2022 school year. I served as a school counselor for 12 years in Shelby County Schools, and this is my fifth year at Rivercrest. I taught 3rd grade for three years prior to becoming a school counselor and I loved teaching. I am excited to continue serving the students at Rivercrest as the school counselor. I am eager to begin working with faculty, parents, and community leaders to ensure that each child has a productive and successful school year.
As a school counselor, I complete individual and small group counseling. This year, small group counseling will be amended because of the health guidelines from the CDC and the Shelby County Health Department. I also complete classroom guidance lessons. Our classroom guidance program provides large group activities where students can learn ways to be respectful, responsible, and resourceful every day.
Please feel free to contact me at the school if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to assist you in any way that I can. Thanks in advance for your cooperation and support of the guidance department at Rivercrest Elementary.
I look forward to working with all of you!
