Lora Horan-Kimsal, MSW, LICSW
I am excited to join Highland Park Senior High School for the 2019-2020 school year! I have worked for Saint Paul Public Schools since 1999 where I have served as an elementary teacher, school social worker, and trauma informed coach. I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in teaching from the University of Wyoming and my Master of Social Work degree from St. Kate's. I hold a clinical licensure in social work as well as licensure in school social work. My professional interests include trauma informed care, and the use of therapeutic art, yoga, and mindfulness in the school setting.
I enjoy seeing live music, reading, traveling, and knitting. I am married and have a fabulous son who is active in music, skateboarding, and hockey.
