Elementary School Counselor
As a School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to advocate for the academic, personal, and social development of all students. Throughout the year, I will be conducting classroom lessons once a month. These lessons teach skills that are important for academic and social development.
I will also meet with students in small groups when I am made aware of a specific student need. Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent. I hope that you reach out if you have any concerns regarding your student.
A letter will be sent home to the parent or guardian describing the small group focus and skills being worked on.
Individual Counseling will take place on an as needed basis. If there is a concern/need from a student, teacher, administrator, and/or parent. I will see students individually to assist them in academic, personal, career readiness, and social development.
There is a link below for community resources if those are needed.
My name is Kate Kissee. This is my third year as the Elementary School Counselor for Sparta. I graduated from Sparta in 2011. I am happy to be here and very excited to be serving the students and families of this community. When I am not working as a School Counselor, I love to spend time with my husband and my two pups, Walter and Miles. I also love to be outdoors, watch sports, and traveling!
Here I have made a list of resources that can be beneficial to student, teachers, administrators, and parents.
