My name is Kendra Berglund-Lee and I’m your School Counselor! The way I like to explain it to the kids is the teacher teaches your brain and the counselor teaches your heart; you need both to survive! I started as a teacher, here at Love, teaching 1st grade for three years, then a 1st/2nd split class for a year. After 4 years of teaching, I finished my master’s degree in School Counseling and moved back to my home state of New Mexico. I spent my 1st year as a Counselor there, in Albuquerque. But I missed Love Elementary so much, I decided to come back after just one year of being away!! I came back in 2017 and spend one year teaching 4th grade, after which I became the School Counselor. I LOVE my job! I spend my day going into classrooms for whole group mini-lessons and pulling smaller groups I call Friendship Club. Being able to talk to the students about the importance of Respect, Honesty, and Friendship is truly a joy for me and I look forward to coming to work every day!!
