Welcome To Elementary School Counseling!
My name is Susan Kalin, and I am the school counselor for all of the elementary students in our shared districts. All students K-5 have weekly guidance classes, and the opportunity for individual or small group work is available as needed. I am in Schaller on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and in Holstein on Tuesday and Galva on Thursday. The best way to contact me is through email.
This is my 23rd year as a school counselor. Throughout my career, I have worked with students from PreK to college age. People fascinate me, and I believe everyone has a story. It is always an honor to get to know students and learn and understand their stories. It is my hope to be make a positive difference for students, especially at difficult times in their lives.
Northwest Iowa has always been my home. I grew up on a farm north of Sioux City, and my husband and I live on a farm south of Galva. We have five children and one wonderful grandchild. We have three dogs and more than a few farm cats. I love working with animals, helping people, and reading biographies.
