    Behavioral Awareness Point of Contact

    Hello, my name is Leanne Blanchard and I am the High School Counselor for Boone Central High School. I grew up right here in Albion, Nebraska. Following my high school graduation in 1992, I attended the University of Nebraska at Lincoln to earn my bachelor’s degree in Special Education and Elementary Education. From there I began my career as an educator and I have taught special education for over twenty years.  I have also served as a behavior and inclusion consultant and a special education administrator.  Throughout my career,  I earned a master's degree in secondary school counseling from the University of Nebraska - Kearney and a master's degree in school administration from Concordia University in Seward. 

    I am married to AAron Blanchard, who also grew up here in Albion.  We have five children; Cheynelle, Sierra, Taylor, Molly, and Emmet.  


    My role and responsibilities as the high school counselor include:

    Helping students  

           - manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills 

           -short-term counseling
