Hello, and welcome to my school counseling page! My name is Kari Havel, and I have been the School Counselor at South Park Elementary Center since 2001. My background includes a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Science in Education both from Duquesne University. As a school counselor, my primary responsibility is to promote the academic, personal/social, and career development of all students. I will be meeting with students individually and in small groups during lunch, conducting classroom lessons using the Second Step curriculum, meeting with parents, collaborating with teachers and staff, and consulting with community organizations to benefit and meet the needs of all the South Park students and families. I look forward to sharing with, as well as learning from, all of you!
