Welcome to the DeSales Catholic School Counseling Website !
Dear DeSales Catholic School Families:
It is with great honor and pleasure that I would like to introduce myself to you. I am Mrs. Katie Badura, the School Counselor here at DeSales Catholic School. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself, and tell you how excited I am to be a part of the DeSales Catholic School community.
I am a native Western New-Yorker, but currently live in the Town of Lockport with with my husband, Peter, and our two daughters, Leilah and Madison.
I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the State University of New York at Oswego. I loved SUNY-Oswego so much, even with all the wind and snow, that I decided to stay and obtain my Masters of Science in Counseling degree, including NYS certification as a school counselor for grades K-12, from there as well.
Prior to my employment at DeSales Catholic School, I was employed as a Child Advocate at the Child Advocacy Center of Northern New York and as a Student Assistance Counselor at Indian River Intermediate and High Schools. I was also highly active in the community, and volunteered with the Family Readiness Groups at Fort Drum.
I love the loving and caring atmosphere that DeSales provides, and am so excited to begin my fourth year of counseling students at DeSales.
If you would like to meet with me or to discuss any concerns you may have regarding your child, please feel free to contact me at (716) 433-6422 ext. 443 (Monday through Friday from 07:50 am to 03:20 pm); or if you prefer to use email, you may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to working with you and your family!
Mrs. Katie Badura
