Meet the Counselors

  Lauren Robinson, Guidance Counselor

Greetings Cheetahs! I am thrilled to be one of your part-time counselors.  I have been a counselor at CCES since 2006. Prior to that, I taught fourth grade for four years and sixth grade for four years in MCPS. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Education from West Virginia University and my Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. In my spare time I enjoy good food, going to the theater/ballet, dancing, traveling, and spending time with my friends and family, especially my two daughters and husband.

Manfreda Laurie ManfredaGuidance Counselor

Hello Cheetahs!  I grew up in Montgomery County and attended elementary, middle, and high school in the Rockville area.  I received my Bachelor of Education degree from Towson University and my Master of Education, specializing in Guidance Counseling from Loyola College in Baltimore.  In 2000, I began working for MCPS as a classroom teacher for third and fourth grade.  In 2013, I became the school counselor here at CCES.  I am so happy to be here at the same school where my father went many years ago!  I enjoy running, reading, music, going to the beach, and spending time with my husband and our two boys.  I’m looking forward to another terrific year at CCES!
