Counselor's Corner

Dear LMS families,

My name is Coach Coleman, and I am excited to introduce myself as the new school counselor at LMS.  I am a native of Nashville, TN and graduated from MTSU in May with an M.Ed. in School Counseling.  In Nashville, I coached the middle school boys’ basketball team at Nashville Christian School for the past three years and also served as a high school assistant.  In addition to my role as the school counselor at LMS, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to serve as the head girls’ basketball coach.  I look forward to meeting each student at LMS and assisting them in their academic, personal/social and career development throughout the school year.  I have heard nothing but compliments about LMS and feel privileged to become a part of this great school community.  Please feel free to e-mail or call me at any time.  I am looking forward to a great school year!
