Ms. Robin Valerius

I grew up in Miami, Florida where I swam with dolphins and enjoyed the sunshine.  I earned an Associate Degree from Miami Dade Community College and a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from Florida International University.  I taught at Lake Stevens Middle School for three years before attending graduate school at Loyola University where I earned a Master of Science degree in Reading.  

My intention was to return to Miami and continue teaching, but my love of Louisiana and the love of a couple of counseling courses enticed me to stay at Loyola and earn a second Masterd degree in Counseling. My education and training are based on the American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) National Model and the Strengths-Based School Counseling framework. 

I have worked at Destrehan High School for nineteen years and still love working with high school students. It is my pleasure to walk with your children on their journey through high school as they prepare for their futures. 

In my free time I enjoy walking my dogs, spending time with family, and friends.
