Hi Sparkman Senators!!
My name is Jessica Kalathas (feel free to call me Mrs. K) and I'll be the counselor for students with last names starting with H-O! I'm so honored and excited to join the Sparkman family and begin building relationships with the amazing students, families, and faculty.
I'm originally from south central Pennsylvania, I moved here 7 years ago with my husband. I received an undergraduate degree in Social Work from Shippensburg University. I worked with Crisis Services of North Alabama for 6 years where I managed community resources and provided suicide prevention education to teachers and students in Madison County. I got my Master's degree in School Counseling from the University of North Alabama, ROAR LIONS!!
My husband and I have been married for 6 years and we have a Basset Hound named Zoey and a Lionhead Rabbit named Charles. We love being outside, so we spend a lot of time hiking and camping, we also love to travel!
You are always welcome in my office! Please come and see me if you have any questions, or concerns, or just want to chat! I can't wait to meet you!!
