Ms. Thomas

My name is Lora Thomas and I'm the School Counselor at Midland Park Primary!  I look forward to working with your students in classroom guidance lessons, small groups, and individually as the need may arise.

This is my second year as a counselor in Charleston County!  I graduated from The Citadel in 2016 with my Masters in Counselor Education.  I also received my licensed professional counseling certificate (LPC) during this time and I plan on continuing my education in the future. My undergraduate degree is in Health Promotion and I graduated from The College of Charleston in 2011. I went on to work in Washington, DC at a nonprofit organization that advocated for inner-city children. After that I taught Kindergarten and Physical Education in Seoul, South Korea until I missed the warm summers in Charleston too much!  I moved back to Charleston and taught at The O'Quinn Schools of Porter Gaud until I started graduate school at The Citadel.  I have always loved working with children and it's my passion to help children thrive socially, emotionally, and academically!  It's a privilege and a joy to work in an area I'm very passionate about! 

Some of my hobbies outside of MPP are running/training for half marathons with local running groups, hanging with my friends on Sullivan's Island, being a part of my church home-East Cooper Baptist, and enjoying time with my family! 

I'm SO happy to be a part of the MPP family and if you ever need anything please let me know!

With lots of love,

Lora Thomas
