Counseling Staff

Mrs. Shelley Curtis

Mrs. Shelley Curtis- Counselor (8th gr. & 7th gr. last names A-K)

Mrs. Curtis is from Salina, Kansas. Her degree is from Kansas State University in Family Studies, Human Services, and Community Service with a Masters in Educational Counseling. She has been working in the public school system for 20 years, all of those years have been at LMS.

Mrs. Curtis states she began working with students because, "I love middle school students! They are in the "sweet spot" of becoming autonomous but also still needing adult support. Seeing students overcome obstacles and become young adults is such a rewarding experience. They change so much between 6-8 grades. It is fun to watch and be a part of it."

In her spare time she enjoys hanging out with her family and friends, listening to music, and watching sports. Her favorite thing to do is watch her son play golf and daughter perform music or on the theatre stage. Her fun fact is she moved 5 times by the time she was 10. Her dad was a manager at a grocery store so they would move when he was going to open a new store.
