Ms. Katie Paulson, LPC, NCC
Hello Jane Addams students and families! I am your 7th grade counselor this year. I started at JA as a practicum student in January of 2015 and have been with the school ever since. I earned my Master's of School Counseling degree from Governors State University and am also a licensed professional counselor and nationally certfied counselor. This fall I will also be teaching my first graduate class called Introduction to School Counseling. My favorite part about being a 7th grade counselor is that I get to build connections with students and families. In my free time I value spending time with my family, friends, and dog. I enjoy running, crafting, and anything that invovles being outside. I also enjoy crafting with my sisters. I currently run the Gay Straight Alliance Club and Craft Club with Mrs. McCollum after school. We hope you can join us! If you need anything, please feel free to email, call, or stop by my office. I strive to always be available to my students and families!
