COUNSELOR

Hello! My name is Cory Neal and I am the School Counselor for Prairie Home RV. This year is my 1st year at Prairie Home and I am so excited to be here!

I earned three Associate's degrees in Child and Family Development, Computer Graphics and Programing and General Studies from Missouri State University - West Plains in 2015. I earned my Bachelor's degree in Child and Family Development from Missouri State University in 2018. During the fall of 2018, I started graduate school to work towards my Master's degree in Counseling. I am planning on graduating with this degree, December of 2020.  I have worked in management at a homeless shelter, worked at a behavioral healthcare center as a caseworker and worked as the director of residence life at MSU - West Plains; this is my first time working in a public school and I am very excited!

I grew up in Mountain View, MO and moved to West Plains, MO right after high school. This is my first adventure outside of Howell County, MO and I am so excited that I landed in this area!

My wife and I got married in 2019 and we share our home with our two fur babies, Rory (yorkie) and Jar Jar (our cat).

My hobbies include spending time with friends and family, watching movies, reading, playing video games, traveling, and really anything that deals with the outdoors.
