Your School Counselor, Ms. Katie Susman


Dear Parents and Guardians of Springfield Elementary School Students,

I am so excited to be a part of your children’s education at Springfield Elementary School. I will be meeting with your children once during every eight-day cycle to help them develop their knowledge, attitudes and skills in three domains - academic, personal/social and career. My goal is to help your children develop to their fullest potential and to help them increase school and life success. I feel very privileged to be a part of that process! 

As a parent of two grown children, I am familiar with many of the challenges children face during their elementary school years. I also have over twenty-five years of experience in education. Most recently I taught kindergarten for ten years in the Westside district in Omaha, and prior to that worked in Special Education. I also have experience teaching sixth grade and working with children in all grades in between. 

I completed my Masters in School Counseling at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and am enthusiastic about using my knowledge, attitudes and skills to support your children this year. I believe in a comprehensive, strengths-based school counseling program aligned with the American School Counselor Association National Model. I feel fortunate that Springfield Platteview Community Schools believes in the same. I look forward to meeting you and to working as a team to promote your children’s success!


Ms. Katie Susman
