Barnette Magnet Counselor Page
My name is Kathy Larson and I am the school counselor at Barnette Magnet School. In addition to counseling, I also teach explorations in the afternoon. I have been employed in the district since 1992. I spent the first ten years of my career as a high school English teacher. I am the proud parent of two children. My son is 18 and will be a freshman at UAF this fall. My daughter is 16, and she is a Fairbanks B.E.S.T. student.
As school counselor at Barnette, I present classroom guidance lessons to K-2 students. I work with students individually for personal or academic difficulties, and I facilitate groups for various difficulties (social, emotional, or academic). In addition, I serve as a resource for parents, teachers, and other staff.
In my free time, I love hanging out with my children and friends. I love playing and watching hockey, hunting, fishing, four-wheeling, motorcycling, camping, and hiking. Fairbanks has been my home since 1989, and I love living here.
I am looking forward to another great year here at Barnette. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
