St. Paul's Counselors

Grades 6-8: Katherine Isbister, M.Ed. in School Counseling
Grades 1-5: Amelia Minnich, M. Ed. in School Counseling

Welcome back!  Your school counselors this year, returning from last year are, Ms Amelia Minnich and Mrs. Katherine Isbister.  Ms Amelia will be working with the elementary grades from Monday to Thursday.  Mrs. Isbister works with the middle school grades throughout the week.

All of our students are welcome and invited to work with us so that we may assist them with their emotional, social and academic success.  This includes concerns with test taking, anger, friendships, and decision making.  We meet with students individually, in small groups or in the classroom as a large group.

Students can be referred to us through their teachers, parents, themselves, and even by their friends.  Information shared with the counselor is kept confidential, unless a student intends to harm themselves or another.  If the problem is ongoing, the counselors will notify the parents.

Please feel free to contact us at any time concerning your child, or your family as a whole.  We have access to a plethora of resources and will do our best to serve you and your family.

- Ms Minnich and Mrs. Isbister
