Guidance

 

Hello! My name is Katie Witzeling and I have been a School Counselor for 30 years. I received my Bachelor's Degree from UW-SP and my Master's Degree in School Counseling from UW-O.  This is my 23rd year at North Cape- I have the best job on the planet! I am the proud Mom of two children - a sophmore at UW-Madison and a senior 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.

Welcome to the School Counseling Program

Here you will find information on the role of school counselors, the mission and vision, the services we provide, and helpful resources.  According to the ASCA National Model, 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.
