Mr. Erwin L. Smith, School Counselor

Greetings! My name is Erwin Smith, and I am the school counselor at Lawson Elementary School. I am excited to be apart of a school community of amazing students, parents, teachers, and staff. The 2022-2023 school year marks the beginning of my third year as a school counselor.

My educational background includes a bachelor's degree in Sociology, a master’s degree in Education and a specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, shopping, volunteering, eating, and filling other people's buckets! 

Lawson's School Counseling program focuses on the social, emotional, academic, and career development needs of ALL students. I look forward to getting to know your family, or continuing to support your family, as your child continues their education at Lawson Elementary School. Please feel free to reach out to me at any point, if you or your family need additional support. Incase no one has told you today, you are a great parent/ or guardian. Thank you for your support! 



Erwin Smith, Ed.S.
