Ms. Laura Minogue

6th Grade Counselor

I started my school counseling career in 2008 and I have been a school counselor in the West Ada School District since 2013. I studied Psychology and Education at the University at Albany and received a Masters Degree in Counseling from Hunter College in NYC.  I help students maneuver through obstacles by focusing on skill building in areas such as conflict management, effective communication, organizational strategies, and coping with challenging emotions. My primary goal is to be an advocate for students and support their academic, social, and emotional growth.  In my free time I like to hang out with family and friends, practice yoga, and spend as much time as I can outdoors!  Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or questions.  I hope we can work together to make this a great year!

7th Grade Counselor

I am so thrilled to be a member of the LHMS community as your 7th grade counselor! I've been counseling students in the educational realm for over 6 years, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to be an advocate for students on a daily basis. Prior to this job, I counseled at an all-girls high school in Oakland, CA. My husband was raised in Boise, so we decided to come back to his hometown in 2019...and I love it! The hills, rivers, and people in Boise are incredible. I studied Education and Sociology at UC Berkeley and received my Masters in School Counseling at Saint Mary's College of CA. I practice academic and social-emotional counseling - so please come by my office if you need counseling for any issues personally, in the classroom, at home, and/or within friendships/relationships. I look forward to meeting you!

8th Grade Counselor

I started working as a school counselor in 2006.  I was a high school teacher before that.  I've been a school counselor at all grade levels, K-12, and I've been working at Lake Hazel Middle School since 2018.  I'm here to help and support students in the areas of academic, social-emotional learning, and career exploration.  I've lived in Boise since 1995.  I have two kids -- my daughter attends an Idaho University and my son is almost ready to graduate from high school.  When I'm not working, I like to work on projects like home renovations. I also enjoy all kids of art.
