Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! I am Kristen Berkas, Ms. Berkas as students call me, and I am the School Counselor. This is my second year at Benjamin E. Mays IB World School. Students at Benjamin E. Mays experience school counseling through classroom counseling lessons, small groups, and individual counseling services. I genuinely enjoy my role of support for all students, families, and staff at Benjamin E. Mays through a variety of ways! All k-5 students participate in classroom lessons to learn invaluable, life-long social skills, such as bullying prevention, problem solving, managing emotions, career & college exploration, empathy, academic growth mindset, and friendship (to name just a few!). Small group and individual services are also a big part of support available and provided to students through school counseling. If there is anything I can do to help support your student's success, please let me know!
