Kristina Rogers, School Counselor
Degrees and Certifications:
I am one of two school counselors at Horace Mann Elementary. I've been a school counselor in SPPS since 2011 but am new to the Horace Mann community. I received my master’s degree in Educational Psychology (School Counseling) from the University of Minnesota. I love being a school counselor and feel honored to work with so many wonderful students and families every day! My hope for all of our students is that they continue to grow their interests and talents as joyful, enthusiastic learners. While I am passionate about helping all students feel connected and successful at school, I have particular interest in the social emotional needs of gifted students and promoting racial equity and inclusion within the school system.
As a school counselor, I work to support our scholars in three main areas: Social and Emotional Development, Career Exploration, and Academic Achievement. I see scholars on a one-to-one basis around topics such as emotional regulation, social skills, grief, and family change. Sometimes students ask to see me themselves, and other times they are referred by family members or teachers. I also respond to immediate needs within our school community, support positive behavior plans and lead weekly small groups and classroom lessons focused on topics such as growth mindset, friendship skills, conflict resolution, personal safety, and college and career readiness.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns, or if you feel your child could use additional support in any of these areas.
