My name is Danielle LeGrand and I am your friendly neighborhood school counselor, here in the land of Cary Chameleons. I've been in the school system for 11 years. Before my journey as a school counselor, I was the lead teacher in a 3 and 4 year old classroom. Prior to teaching, I was an after school counselor at Hayes-Taylor YMCA.
I graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, with a Bachelors in Child Development and Masters in Counseling Education. AGGIE PRIDE!!!!
I am excited to begin a brand new school year and meet some new smiling faces. One of my biggest roles is to support and advocate for students. This entails individual counseling, small groups, classroom guidance, lunch bunch and much more. When working with children and adolescences I look at the "whole child". The "whole child" is making sure the child's social, emotional and physical needs are met. Ensuring that all students are healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged in some way.
I'm usually visible in the building, but I am always an email or phone call away. I look forward to working with all of you and a successful school year.
