Meet the Counselors!

  • Mrs. Eslick

    Hello! My name is Leah Eslick and this is my 5th year as a counselor at Lillian Schumacher. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Graceland University and my Master's Degree in Counseling from MidAmerica Nazarene University. I recently completed my Play Therapy Certification from MidAmeriza Nazarene and am currently under supervision and working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist (RPT) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). 

     My husband and I got married in July 2016, and our son, Baker, was born in August 2019. We also have a dog named Blitz! Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, reading a good book and traveling when I can. I am originally from Liberty, and absolutely love getting to work in the same school district I grew up in!

    Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. You can reach me at my contact information below.

    Mrs. Rhodes

    Hello! I'm Meg Rhodes and I am thrilled to be beginning my first year as a counselor with you at Lillian Schumacher. I will spend two days a week and Schumacher, and one day a week at Kellybrook. I share my home with my husband, daughters, and furbabies. Along with being with students, I enjoy cooking, gardening, reading, and spending time with my family. And I can almost ALWAYS be found with a coffee in hand.
    Please let me know of anything I can do to make your time as a shark go swimmingly. I am looking forward to getting to know you! 
    I work primarily with 2nd grade this year! I am at Lillian Schumacher on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
