Elementary School Counselor


Counseling Lessons

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.


Small Groups

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 that will need to be signed by a parent or guardian allowing your child to participate in the small group activity. 


Invididual Counseling

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.


About me

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 therapy dog, Walter and his best friend, Miles. I also love to be outdoors, watch sports, and travel!


Here I have made a list of resources that can be beneficial to student, teachers, administrators, and parents.
