Stephanie Lerner is a Johns Hopkins University-trained school counselor. She holds a BS in elementary education and an MS in counseling. With more than 20 years in both public and private education, she has Texas certifications in school counseling and bilingual/Spanish education. After traveling the world and teaching in such far off places as Mozambique and Bolivia, Stephanie came home to the United States to be a bilingual counselor and teacher in a high-need public school system. In this capacity, she was named as a 2017 finalist for Texas School Counselor of the Year. She is a published author and teaches school counseling classes as Angelo State University. Stephanie also loves to present and train on all things school counseling. When she’s not writing, counseling, educating, or presenting, she enjoys ranch life with her husband and their menagerie of pets—all of whom practice healthy coping skills, of course!
