Ms. Panek

Hello! My name is Lauren Panek (pronounced Pon-ick) and I am the 7th grade counselor. This will be my 2nd year at Belmont Ridge Middle School and I am excited for the opportunity to work with you all! With over 9 years of experience working with children and adolescents, I am passionate about advocating for student needs through stakeholder engagement and providing an equitable, safe school environment for all students. 

 

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from James Madison University and my Master's degree in Counselor Education from the University of Virginia. I am originally from central New Jersey. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, baking, exercising, traveling, and watching sports- Go Packers and Nats!!

 

I look forward to working with you and your child this year. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
