Counselor's Corner

Ms ThreattWelcome to the Counselor’s Corner!  My name is Ms. Claire Threatt and I have the honor of working at Northeast Lauderdale High School as the High School Counselor.  I am a proud graduate of Northeast High, Class of 1994, where I spent all 13 years from K through 12th.  It is such a privilege to serve and minister the students of the very district that invested in my life and education.  I graduated from Mississippi State University with a Bachelor’s in Elementary Education, and immediately began working at Northeast Elementary as a 2nd grade teacher.  In 2000 I had the chance to move to Texas, enrolling at Dallas Baptist University to work on my Master of Education in School Counseling.  I gained experience in elementary, special education, and middle school counseling while in Texas.  Although I loved my time in the Dallas area, I moved back to Mississippi and began my high school counseling experience working at Choctaw Central High School in 2014.  As much as I have loved all developmental levels, high school is by far my favorite!  Adolescence is a challenging and rewarding experience – a time of life that shapes the future – and it’s my responsibility to help guide all students in the right direction whether that be college/career readiness or life/coping skills.  It is not a responsibility that I take lightly.  Please do not hesitate to contact me by email or phone if there’s any way I can assist you!
