Ashley Guilliot Earns School Counselor Recognition
Our very own, Mrs. Ashley Guilliot, has earned the esteemed Emily Garfield School Counselor Award from the San Mateo County School Board Association! As so many of you are aware, Laurel wouldn’t be Laurel without Mrs. Guilliot. She is a champion for kids… for ALL kids. Ashley is an exemplary school counselor who knows all Laurel students' strengths, interests, friendships and areas of need -- truly! Keeping an extra eye out for our most vulnerable students, Mrs. Guilliot quietly ensures they are connected and cared for. Counseling through the pandemic has highlighted for me how steady and strong of an advocate she is for children. Beyond all of this, she has helped our staff grow in our approach to equity minded and anti-racist practices. There is no one more deserving of the Emily Garfield Award than Mrs. Guilliot; as you know she is the heart of the Laurel School Community and an exemplar for all school counselors.
Kind regards,
