Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kaila Bell and this is my 5th year with EOE and my 15th year working with youth in a variety of capacities. I love the energy of being a school counselor in an elementary school. Our kids are hungry for interaction, learning, and connection. As the school counselor I believe it's important to know all students by name, strength and need. I bring that from one of my previous districts, but it has stuck with me as a way of doing business. Knowing our students by name, helps all students feel seen and important. Knowing their strengths and needs helps us be more strategic in every interaction, ultimately supporting students to grow into the best student they can be.
I live with my husband, two sons, dog and two chickens in Olympia. To practice self-care I enjoy camping, running, walking, watching movies, spending time with friends and family, and continuing to learn through reading and attending trainings in all areas that help me to grow as a school counselor and a person.
