Mrs. Terri Ingle » Home


Hello! My name is Terri Ingle-Krause and I am the school counselor at MEC. I've been fortunate to be a part of MEC since we began in 2006. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Deaf Education and Elementary Education at Lenoir-Rhyne University. I taught at the NC School for the Deaf in Morganton for six years. I attended Appalachian State University, where I received my Master's Degree in School Counseling. In addition to MEC, I worked at West McDowell Junior High as a school counselor for three years.

As the school counselor at MEC, I am available to work with students on issues ranging from academics to personal/social concerns. Students may be referred by teachers, family, friends or through a self referral.  I work with seminar teachers to share information regarding mental health and student wellness. 
I also teach senior seminar for students that will be attending a four year college/university after graduation. In senior seminar, we complete college applications, work on financial aid and address a variety of topics to help students transition successfully to their future campus.

I live in Nebo with my husband and best friend Scott and our kitties. My favorite things to do are spending time with my family and working outside. I love to garden and work in my flowers. I'm an active member of and enjoy participating in various classes at the YMCA.

You may contact me through email or by phone (828) 659-0413.
