Dear Nine Mile Falls Families,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself! My name is Ms. Kendall and I am the new School Counselor at Nine Mile Falls Elementary. I am so excited to be part of the Nine Mile Falls Elementary family; already it is so apparent how close-knit and welcoming the community is, and I feel very lucky to be part of it!

My passion for Counseling began during my time as a student at Washington State University where I received my Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology. After volunteering with Spokane organizations, I earned my Master’s Degree in School Counseling from Whitworth University. My career began at Brentwood Elementary in the Mead School District, which emphasized my passion for younger kiddos. What I love most about the elementary level is the genuine curiosity students have in their learning and the world around them, as well as the opportunity for early intervention support that can have a lifetime positive impact on a child.

As a School Counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students. I will be meeting with students individually, in small groups, and will also be teaching classroom lessons focused on Social/Emotional Learning (SEL). My role also includes interacting and meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all Nine Mile Falls students.

Thank you and I look forward to getting to know you, your students, and the Nine Mile community!

All the best,
Kendall DeRemer School
