Welcome to Mrs. K's Counselor page!
Hello!  My name is Mrs. Kwiatkowski (pronounced Kitkuske), but you can call me Mrs. K.  I am the school counselor for the Elementary, Junior High, and High School. I was born and raised in Washington County, earned my bachelor's degree in Biological Science/Secondary Ed at SIU Edwardsville, and earned my master's degree in School Counseling at SIU Carbondale.  I joined Coulterville School District in January, 2018 and enjoy getting to know all of the students.  Thank you for being so welcoming and friendly and I am very glad to be part of the CUSD family.  When I'm not at school I love spending time with my husband, Josh, and my family, driving our vintage cars and truck, snuggling with my 2 spoiled cats, and watching old movies.  
I love working with all the students in the district and watching all the growth that happens every day! Helping high school students work out what their passions are and how they can turn that in to a career is so exciting.  I am available to help any student work through whatever is bothering them.  I also do my best to share any opportunity I come across with the students no matter the age group.
