My name is Ms. Drake and I am one of the members that make up our Student Success Team here at MCHS. I am a lifelong resident of Michigan City
and was part of the first graduating class of Michigan City High School. After high school, I attended Purdue University and earned my Bachelors degree in Liberal Studies with a main focus of English and Communications, and minor focus in Psychology. I continued my work towards my Master’s degree of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy, where I also worked for 15 years as a Professional Academic Advisor and taught college-level classes. In 2018,I made the leap from my role in higher education to teaching secondary education and I couldn't be happier with my choice. In 2019 I crossed over once again to my role as Student Success Coach with MCHS. My role here at MCHS is to serve as a resource to help our students reach their highest level of personal success.
