All About Mrs. Harrison

Welcome!

ACES Tigers - I'm so very excited to be one of YOUR School Counselors.

I graduated with a BS in Elementary Education from Longwood University in the Spring of 2005. In the fall of 2008, I was accepted into the Graduate program for School Guidance and Counseling at Longwood University. I have successfully completed all the courses for the program, along with 450 practicum hours- at Greenfield Elementary, in Chesterfield County and Fork Union Military School, in Fork Union, VA and at Nottoway Middle School. I officially graduated in December 2010, with my Master's of Education in school guidance and counseling.

I taught 2nd grade at ACES for seven years and 3rd grade for three years (and three months!), before transitioning into the school counselor position at ACES in the fall of 2015. This is my sixth year as a school counselor at ACES, and my sixteenth year in education!

All About Mrs. LaVecchia

Welcome!

ACES Tigers - I'm so very excited to be one of YOUR School Counselors.

I am originally from Highland Springs, Virginia. My family moved to Amelia in 2013. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have two children: Emily, 15 and Hunter, 11 who attend school here in Amelia.

I graduated with a BS in Psychology with a cognate in Addiction and Recovery from Liberty University in the Spring of 2014. I received my Masters in Education in School Counseling from Liberty University in the Spring of 2017. During that time, I completed my practicum at Crossroads in Charlotte Courthouse and my two semesters of internship (35+ hours a week) at ACES, ACMS, and ACHS. I am a Nationally Certified Counselor.

I was a School Counselor at Nottoway Intermediate for three years before coming back to Amelia, where my heart belongs. I am so excited to be back home with you all!
