Ms. Kristina Bonello
My name is Kristina Bonello, I am one of the three amazing social workers working at Bruce Vento; I work specifically with the 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms. I am also the school’s trauma coach. My job is to help make sure all students and families feel safe and supported when they come to Bruce Vento. I have been working with youth and families for the past 15 years, the past 6 years as a school-based therapist in metro-area schools. I am excited to have joined such a magical learning community at Vento.
I grew up outside of Madison Wisconsin, and moved to Minnesota to attend The University of Minnesota where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Child Psychology. After working with youth and families experiencing crisis, I went on to earn my Master’s degree in Social Work from The University of St. Catherine and Saint Thomas.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 2 children, and our dog, Steve. We adventuring around town, being outdoors, dancing, and finding fun moments in everyday life. When I am not running around with my family, I enjoy practicing yoga, exercising, reading, and laughing with friends.
Please feel free to contact me at 651-744-5347, I look forward to hearing from you.
