Mrs. Laureen Held (serving L-Z)

I am incredibly happy to work at Robert Gray Middle School! The teachers, staff and administrators care about our students and are dedicated to the academic rigor required for our students to achieve excellence in learning.

As a counselor, I love working with Middle school students! I've often said, "Middle school students are young enough they still like adults and old enough you can have amazing conversations with them." Early adolescents is a time for growth, self-discovery, connecting with peers and the world around them. Youth are filled with energy, emotions, creative ideas, and are continuing to cultivate cognitive skills while becoming young adults. Working in this supportive environment makes my "J-O-B" a delightful way to spend each school day!

Sometimes people ask about my personal life. My husband, Jay and I have been married for 34 years.  Together we raised four children, each of whom are now young adults.  We love them very much! Spending time with them is wonderful. My favorite things to do when not at work: Friday date nights with Jay!, time with our grown children!, trips to the Oregon coast, singing in the annual  production:  Singing Christmas Tree, watching movies, listening to Audible books, playing board games, time with friends, bicycling and kayaking. We have a rascally rescue puppy, Lewey who is now 5 years old. He is always ready for a walk, cuddles and end of the day shenanigans.
