Mrs. Teresa Grant
Greetings Taylor Community,
My name is Teresa Grant, your full-time school counselor. I previously served as a part interventionist here at Taylor. I’m grateful to be part of a learning community that educates the whole child, inspiring them to become critical, empathetic, and compassionate lifelong learners contributing positively to society.
I’m a nationally certified Licensed Professional Counselor, experienced K-6 teacher endorsed in Gifted and Talented education. As a child, adolescent, and family therapist, I provide support for social/emotional, behavioral, and cognitive disorders.
I graduated from The University of Northern Colorado with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. After the enriching experience of teaching elementary school for many years in diverse cultural & social economic settings, I made the decision to return to school to pursue a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling.
I’m a native of Colorado Springs’ “West Side.” It was here that my love of nature and horses took root. As a child, I loved exploring my neighborhood and surrounding woods on horseback with my friends. This “big backyard” awakened in me at an early age a sense of wonder and discovery that I would later share with children in my role as a teacher, Young Environmental Stewards instructor, and Equine Assisted Psychotherapist. These experiences and countless others have served as the foundation from which I continue to grow in my work with children, families, and communities.
Please know I’m available and look forward to meeting you and discussing how I can best support you and your children. Feel free to contact me via email. firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be in touch and hope to meet you soon.
Teresa J. Grant, LPC, NCC
