Melinda Hobgood
  • Hello!  I have had the wonderful privilege to serve as the school counselor here at Lancaster Elementary since it opened it's doors in the fall of 2011.  Before that I was school counselor at Madisonville Elementary, Madisonville Junior High and also at Clearwood Junior High and Bayou Woods Elementary in Slidell, LA.  I love my job and I especially love working with the students, teachers and staff at Lancaster Elementary!

    I graduated from Southeastern La University in 1992 with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  Later, I earned my Master's degree in Counselor Education from SLU.  I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a National Certified School Counselor (NCSC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). 

    Some of my duties here at Lancaster include individual/group counseling, classroom lessons, gifted and talented coordinator, KIT coordinator and the SAT (Student Assistance Team) chairperson.  I also serve on various committees such as Leadership, PBIS and Crisis Team.  Please don't hesitate to contact me if there are any questions, concerns or comments.
