Hello Luray Middle School!

I am Mrs. Viola and I’m elated to be joining the Bulldog family as your School Counselor. I have spent the last eight years in Education as a 4th grade teacher, 7th grade English teacher, and recently taught a Leadership and Peacebuilding course to 7th and 8th graders. I received my BA in Education from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, my Masters of Education in School Counseling from Liberty University and a Restorative Justice in Education Master’s Certificate from Eastern Mennonite University. I have a passion for building community, preparing students emotionally and academically for their future, and social justice.

When I’m not busy serving the Luray Middle School Family, you may find me hiking, biking, or camping with my husband, Tim and golden doodle, Jackson. I love everything outdoors and adventurous! I also enjoy yoga, Pilates, and pumping iron at the gym!

I look forward to spending the next year getting to know the Luray Middle School Family. I welcome phone calls, emails, or drop ins from students, staff, parents, and community members. Here’s to a great year!

Mrs. Viola & her husband
