Meet the Counselors!

  • Mrs. Eslick

    Hello! My name is Leah Eslick and this is my 3rd 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 we have a 2-year old 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. Decker

    Hello! My name is Kayla Decker and this is my first year as a counselor. My week is split between Lillian Schumacher and Kellybrook Elementary School. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Baker University and my Master's Degree in Counseling from Northwest Missouri State University. I taught third grade for eight years in Excelsior Springs and four years at Lillian Schumacher before starting my counseling career this year.
     
    My husband and I got married in December of 2013, and we have a daughter, Kinsley, born in November 2016. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, running, and going to the lake. I graduated high school from Liberty and have stayed in the community where my daughter will one day go to school.
     
    I will primarily be working with 4th grade this year! I am at Lillian Schumacher on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
     
    Please feel free to call or email me at anytime.
