Mrs. Courtney Swanson
Hello Hudson Middle School Family, I am Courtney Swanson, the School Counselor for students with last names of A-K. This is my first year at the Hive and I am happy to be a Hornet. I have been a School Counselor both at South Caldwell High School and William Lenoir Middle School. I have loved working with students for many years.
I am originally from Raleigh, North Carolina and a graduate of Meredith College. After moving to Caldwell County I completed my Masters in School Counseling from Appalachian State University while working at Caldwell County Hospice and Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute. I am married, with two children, and we have a black lab named Lucy. In my spare time, I am an extreme Tarheel fan and like to attend football and basketball games.
My goal as a School Counselor is to support the academic, career and social development of all students. I plan to do this by working closely with families, teachers, administrators , community members and support teams. Individual counseling, classroom guidance lessons, small groups and schoolwide activities will be part of our plan to support students. Should you ever need to reach me I can contacted at 728-4281 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to meeting many new students and families.
