About your School Counselor

My name is Emily Rexrode and this is my 3rd year as the school counselor at Mary C. Greer Elementary. I am a graduate of Mary Baldwin College and Virginia Tech.  My first job at Greer was teaching 5th grade. I loved teaching 5th grade but decided I really wanted to be a school counselor.
