Albany school counselor selected one of the best

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  TeShaunda Hannor-Walker is a counselor at Northside Elementary. Last week, she went to Washington D. C., as one of 10 finalists for Counselor of the Year selected by the American School Counselor Association.

She didn't take home the top honor, but says she's honored to be named among the best in her field.

She believes her work against bullying, her expertise on dealing with children with Attention deficit disorder and her educational career all contributed to her being considered.

"To actually be a finalist, oh, it's overwhelming, with excitement though because it just kind of speaks to something that I'm very passionate about and it's interesting that people are watching the work that I'm doing."

More than 230 counselors across the nation were nominated for Counselor of the Year.

Hannor-Walker spent most of last week in Washington, where she was able to meet with Senators Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss and education specialists.
