Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Katelyn Neil and I am the K-2 School Counselor at Westwood Elementary. I am excited to be part of the Westwood team, helping all students achieve their goals.
I received my Bachelor of Science at the University of Northern Iowa in Psychology and a Masters in School Counseling from the University of Iowa. I joined the Ankeny School District as a school counselor in 2018-2019.
My mission as a school counselor is to provide academic, social-emotional, and career supports to all students in an engaging way. I have the opportunity to work with students in our building through classroom guidance as well as leading small groups and working with individuals, families, and teachers. In partnership with teachers, administrators, and families, the school counseling program will help students gain the skills necessary for academic and personal success.
I hope to communicate with parents as often as possible to support our students learning. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have, I would love to help in any way I can.
