Who is your School Counselor?


About Erainna Winnett
I was born and raised in central Louisiana. The oldest of five children I always yearned to be a teacher and forced my siblings to play school year round. Naturally, I graduated with a teaching degree in 1995 and earned my Master's degree in 2000. Five years later I earned my Education Specialist degree in early childhood education. After fifteen years in the classroom, I moved to the role of school counselor and I've never been happier. I'm thrilled to be Lamar Elementary's School Counselor.
