Meet the School Counselor

Hello and WELCOME BACK!! I hope that you and your family had a relaxing and fun summer vacation. My name is Amber Houser, and I am thrilled to be the new full-time counselor at Lawrence Elementary School! I am excited to collaborate with all the staff at Lawrence Elementary, as well as teaching guidance, meeting with small groups and meeting with students individually. This is going to be a fun year filled with learning, growing, and lots of new adventures. I cannot wait to get to know you, your family, and most importantly your child!

First, I wanted to take a moment to tell you a few things about me. I am originally from New Prague, MN. I attended South Dakota State University for my Bachelors and Masters Degrees. In 2015 I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, and in the Spring of 2017 I graduated with my Master’s in School Counseling. In 2016, my fiancé and I moved to Sioux Falls, and recently made the move to Tea. We keep busy by renovating our new home, hiking, traveling, and making our way back to Minnesota to visit our families.

This will be my first year as a School Counselor, and I consider myself to be so lucky to have the opportunity to pursue my passion, elementary school counseling. I am so excited to get the year started. My hope is that this school year will be full of fun and successful experiences for all students. Please feel free to contact me at any time throughout the year with any questions or concerns or anything I can do to assist you and your child!


Ms. Houser, M.S.
