Ms. Lauren Higgins
Greeting Atkins Students and Parents! This is my first year at Atkins High School and I am delighted to be here. Just to tell you a little bit about myself, I was born in New York but grew up in Florida and have lived in various places in North Carolina. I received my Bachelor of Arts in History with teacher certification from UNC Charlotte in 2007. After that, I taught a year of 8th grade social studies at Mooresville Middle School in Mooresville, NC. I received my Master of Science in Counseling from UNC Greensboro in 2012. I was an elementary school counselor for 5 years at Sedge Garden Elementary School. My interests in counseling include career and academic development, as well as using creative expression techniques, and working with students with special needs. In my spare time, I like to read, crochet, watch various TV shows, surf the internet, travel, visit museums, shop and dine out. Some of my responsibilities this school year will be working with 9th-12th grade students, last name D-L and 504 Coordinator.
