Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Laura Deming and I’m so happy to be Oakhurst’s full-time school counselor. I’ve worked at Oakhurst for the past 10 years. I will soon celebrate my 20th anniversary with the City Schools of Decatur and I can’t think of a better place to work. I started in 1996 as a social work intern, was hired that year as a school social worker and then became a school counselor. I have my Education Specialist degree in professional school counseling as well as a master’s in school social work and my license in clinical social work.
I enjoy working and living in Decatur, where my son went to school from kindergarten until he graduated from Decatur High in 2010. I also have four wonderful, fully-fledged stepchildren. My hobbies and interests include gardening, hiking, cooking, music, reading and spending time with my geriatric dog and ever-youthful husband.
I look forward to getting to know all of you who are new to Oakhurst and I’m here to support you and your children in every way I can. I know we’ll have a terrific year together as Oakhurst Owls!
