Counselor's Corner


My name is Mrs. Lasher, and I am the school counselor at Orchard Drive Elementary School! School counselors are here to help students in a variety of ways focused on character development including classroom lessons, group counseling support, and individual counseling support. At Orchard, your child will attend counseling every other week as a class where we will learn about relationships, emotions, character development, self-regulation, etc… all the necessities of becoming good humans!
I’m also here as a safe person for your kids in the building. Short term individual counseling, group counseling, and crisis response are all other ways I’ll be a resource for them depending on their needs. I’m sure we will get to know each other well as your child moves through our school; I’m also here to help with behavior interventions, academic support, and overall be a member of care teams. 

Feel free to contact school counselor, Rachel Lasher at [email protected] or 573-243-9555 if you need anything or have any questions about the counseling program.
