North Platte Public Schools | School Counselor
My name is Janelle Moorhous and this is my 13th year in education. I am the school counselor at Cody and Lake Elementary. Before joining the North Platte Public School District I taught K-12 vocal music for 12 years at the North Platte Catholic Schools. I graduated from Alliance High school. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Music Education K-12 from Chadron State College and later received my Master’s degree in Elementary School Counseling from Chadron as well.
I have been married to my husband Brad for 15 years. Brad works as an electrician for Union Pacific Railroad. We have a beautiful daughter who is 10 yrs old. Our daughter is the light of our world. We enjoy being outdoors and lake life.
I have really enjoyed my first year as a school counselor. It is my mission as a school counselor to have all student’s best interests at all times. I am an advocate for my students and they have the right to learn in a safe and caring environment. I love having the opportunity to empower students to not only be the very best at academics, but to also have strong social skills too.
