Mrs. Laurie Kinstler

Hello and welcome! My name is Laurie Kinstler and I am on the counseling team at NHHS. I am a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, but have lived in many states, including, Arkansas, Missouri and Illinois and now Alabama. I have been a part of New Hope High for 15 years and primarily work with the 10th, 11th and 12th graders, but will absolutely see students of any grade! We are here to help with making sure students have all of the credits needed to graduate, assist with social and emotional struggles a student may be experiencing and my personal favorite, college and career planning! My husband Jim and I have two adult children who are married and we have recently welcomed our first grandchild, so students visiting the counseling office may be subjected to seeing pictures of our grandson!
