Hello! My name is Katie Witzeling and I have been a School Counselor for 28 years. I received my Bachelor's Degree from UW-SP and my Master's Degree in School Counseling from UW-O.  This is my 21st year at North Cape- I have the best job on the planet! I am the proud Mom of two children - a high school senior at WUHS and a college freshman attending NCSU. I also have two rescued dogs that keep me busy outside of work. I love spending time up north in the Eagle River area and traveling in general.  I also enjoy being with my family and friends.  My goal is to help your child be socially, emotionally and academically successful at school. Please contact me at 262-835-4069 or by email with any concerns or questions. Together we can make North Cape a positive experience for you and your child.

ASCA National Model
According to the ASCA National Model Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports, school counselors provide services to students, parents, school staff and the community both directly and indirectly. Direct services are in-person interactions between school counselors and students and include the following: Classroom guidance lessons, individual student planning, and Responsive services (being there when students need us the most). Indirect services are provided on behalf of students as a result of the school counselors’ interactions with others including referrals for additional assistance, consultation and collaboration with parents, teachers, other educators and community organizations.

PBIS Involvement:
PBIS allows our school to incorporate proactive teaching about behavior into every space and time throughout our learners' day. The counselors help with PBIS at all levels. At the "Tier 1" or school-wide level, the counselors teach classroom guidance lessons and work with a team that is dedicated to teaching behavior according to the changing needs we see over time. At the "Tier 2" level, counselors help to identify needs using data and collaborate to provide supports such as behavior plans, small groups, or 1-on-1 instruction or check-ins.
