Hi! My name is Kristina Bonello. Students call me Ms. Kristina. I've been a school social worker at Frost Lake since 2021. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Child Psychology from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities and a Master of Social Work degree from St. Kate’s and St. Thomas University. Before I started working at Frost Lake, I worked at Bruce Vento Elementary, and prior to that I worked as a school-based therapist at metro area elementary, middle and high schools for a number of years.
I love working at Frost Lake! My role is to provide services to support student learning by facilitating social skills groups, individual interventions, and consultation to teachers. I also work with families and children who are experiencing crisis or distress and need assistance with coping at school, or simply need support accessing resources. As one of the Project Reach contacts for our school, I assist families who need housing-related resources. I am also a member of the Special Education team. I am involved in evaluations and providing services to students with special education plans.
Families and community service providers can reach me Monday- Friday from 9:00 am-4:00 pm. I look forward to working with you and your student.
Our support team works to refer families/students who are in need of support to community agencies. Click here to see helpful resources for students and families. If you have any questions about this list and/or a community agency, please feel free to call or email.
