My name is Ms. Kester. Over the years, I have taught Elementary Education 2nd-6th grades in Garden City, Kansas and currently I am the School Psychologist here at Prairie.
I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and Psychology and a Master’s of Science in Education in the area of School Psychology. I have also completed advanced graduate work in order to obtain licensure as a School Psychologist. I attended the University of Wisconsin: Lacrosse for both my undergraduate and graduate studies.
Some of my teaching experiences include three years teaching elementary education, grades 2nd-6th, in Garden City, Kansas; a very diverse community much like Worthington. Two years working as a school psychologist for the Special Education Cooperative in Windom. This is my 26th year working as a school psychologist for District 518. In Worthington I have worked primarily with Early Childhood and elementary aged children.
I love to advocate for children and their families as they access all the services needed to assist their child with special needs to meet his/her potential.
I have special interests in the areas of Attention Deficit Disorder, Attachment Disorder and Autism. I have sought additional training in those areas so that I am better able to serve the families and children of our community.
Although I was born and raised in Wisconsin, I have always been a Vikings and Twins fan!!
