School Counselor

Meet the LMES Counselors

Meet Mrs. Tanesky

I started working as a full time counselor at Lafayette Meadows in 2013.  Prior to my position at Lafayette Meadows, I had two years of experience as a long term substitute elementary counselor for Whitley County and East Noble Schools.  I was a social worker with Network for Safe Families and SCAN for 7 years prior to becoming a counselor.  I love working with families and children.  I am looking forward to another great year! I will be working with grades K,1,3,5 this year.
