Laura Valeriano, Elementary School Counselor
325-387-6940 ext 3103


Hello!  I feel very blessed and proud to be a part of Sonora ISD.  A bit on my educational background and experiences.  I graduated from Sul Ross State University in 2010 with a Bachelor degree in General Studies and have various teaching certifications.  In 2015, I went on to receive my Master of Education in Administration degree and certifications as a Principal and School Counselor from Angelo State University.  I have taught grade levels Kindergarten through 6th grade and have served as a Special Education/504 Coordinator in previous districts. 

My role as Sonora Elementary Counselor is to serve the social, emotional, and educational needs of our students.  I help students be successful in the classroom and in social settings by teaching character building and social lessons.  These lessons focus on students being good listeners, responsible, kind, and honest.  They also aide students in developing good study skills and building positive relationships with others.  In addition, I am responsible for coordinating UIL Academics and all state assessments.   

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I am certain it will be another great year here at Sonora Elementary.
