    I have worked in the field of education for almost 20 years with the last 13 as a school counselor.  My counseling career began in Trumbull, Connecticut at St. Joseph High School, a private college preparatory school.  I later moved to North Carolina, where I was a counselor at East Forsyth High School and was most recently the Director of Student Services at West Forsyth High School in Clemmons.  Before counseling, I worked as a track & field/cross country assistant and then head coach at three Division I schools in New York and Connecticut.  I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Bucknell University (PA) where I competed as a Division I Track & Field athlete. I also hold a Master of Business Administration from Wagner College (NYC) and Master of Arts in School Counseling from Fairfield University (CT) where I became certified by the National Board for Certified Counselors.  Throughout the years, I have developed programming in career and future planning, job shadowing, mentoring, and social/emotional management and self-care.  I am married to Jeff Wyshner, Head Women’s Tennis Coach at Wake Forest University. We have two children, Landon and Sophie, and our dog Molly. I am thrilled to be a part of the team at Lewisville Middle School.  I look forward to sharing my passion for education and working with all students and families.  Go Lions!!!

    Hi, Lewisville Middle LIONS students and families! I’m LaKisha Henry-Simmons and We in Student Services are so excited to welcome you to the LION Family!  I’m a 2nd year School Counselor after having a successful career in banking for 14 years and telecommunications for 10 years.  I earned my Bachelor of Science degree from High Point University in Business Finance & Accounting.  I then decided I wanted to change careers, so I earned a Certification in Human Services from Forsyth Technical Community College and went on to complete my Master’s in School Counseling from North Carolina A&T State University.  I also completed a Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy and earned by National Counselors Certification (NCC).  I’m originally from Tuscaloosa, AL, so we are huge Alabama Crimson Tide fans (Roll Tide Roll!!!).  My husband, Chad and I relocated to Winston-Salem in 2006 and we have three amazing sons, Christian, Cameron, Cayden and our rambunctious Goldendoodle, Sully Jett. I enjoy watching anything HGTV and some occasional Reality TV.  I’m an avid reader and I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach, traveling, shopping, and working in the community through various Civic Organizations, my Church, and my Sorority. I am here to not only support students and families, but to make a positive impact the community in which I live and work.
