Holst, Laura (Counselor)

Welcome! My name is Ms. Holst and I am so excited to be the School Counselor at Oakley Elementary. For the last two years I worked at Charles C. Bell Elementary, I have also worked as an Interim School Counselor at West Buncombe and as a Teaching Assistant at Candler Elementary. I love reading and thinking up new and creative ways to teach and work with your children. This is my first year at Oakley Elementary, and fifth year working in Buncombe county schools. I couldn't be more thrilled to be a Mighty Oak and I look forward to working with students, parents, and teachers. 

As a school counselor, I provide individual short-term counseling, small group counseling, and classroom instruction on topics like emotion management, bullying, careers, and so much more.

Students may wish to discuss their visit with their parent or guardian, and I will always encourage them to do so!

My hope is that you will feel free to contact me with any questions, comments, or concerns you may have about your child so that I can best help them to learn, grow, and be successful this school year.
