    Welcome to the Counselor’s Corner Knights😊 I am so excited to be joining the Simonton family this year serving the K, 2, and 4 students. I obtained a master’s degree in School Counseling from Mercer University, and this will be my third year as a school counselor. Previously, I was a middle school math teacher for 6 years in Gwinnett County.

    I have been married for six years and have two amazing children, Lacey (3) & Luke (2). My interests outside of work include spending time with my family, traveling, and shopping. Also, I love to read books and watch my favorite shows on Netflix.

    I look forward to supporting the students, parents, and the Simonton Staff with anything they need.

    Sending blessings your way,

    Laura Panzer

    Hello and welcome to the Counselor's Corner! I am excited to join the Simonton family this year, and I look forward to supporting students and families as the school counselor for 1st, 3rd, and 5th grades. This is my 18th year as a school counselor, with the past nine years in Gwinnett county working primarily with 6th grade students. I received an Education Specialist degree in Guidance and Counseling from the University of West Georgia. I love spending my free time with my family and two dogs, travelling, and watching scary movies.
