Guidance

E-mail Mrs. Hufford

E-mail Mrs. Hufford here.
  I am Mrs. Laura Hufford, South Vienna Elementary's School Counselor. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education from Anderson College. I received my Master's Degree in School Counseling from the University of Dayton. My co-worker is Veda.  Veda is a Therapy Dog that was donated to South Vienna Elementary by Assistance Dogs of America, www.adai.org.  She is an amazing black labradoodle.
             Veda and I work collaboratively with staff and parents. We get to know the students and look for the strengths in each one.  We help students to learn about themselves and others through monthly guidance lessons, school-wide character education programs, group counseling, and individual counseling. 
             Our school is a character-based school where students not only learn the academic skills needed to succeed but also the life skills needed to become a successful adult. Our staff believes that the whole child matters, and we create an environment that guides the child to find his or her potential.
