Hi!  I am Kim Brackey, the Preschool - 5th Grade School Counselor at St. Ansgar Elementary School.  I am currently in my 16th year at St. Ansgar CSD.  Prior to that, I was a First Grade teacher at Lake Mills CSD. I graduated from Mankato State University, Mankato, Minnesota with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and received my Master of Science in Education, School Counseling degree from Buena Vista University in Storm Lake, Iowa. 

My husband and I have three grown children.  Our oldest son is a sixth grade Math teacher at Fairmont Elementary School in Fairmont, MN. Our daughter is a meteorology major with minors in broadcasting and math.  She currently works at Offut Air Force Base in Omaha as a Computer Engineer working with forecasting models.  Our youngest son has a degree in Mortuary Science and is employed as a licensed funeral director with Bonnerup Funeral and Cremation Services in Albert Lea, MN. My husband and I are blessed with four (soon to be six!) beautiful grandchildren. They have given us new meaning to the word love!

I enjoy participating in, watching, and attending any kind of sporting activity possible.  Some of my favorite teams are the Green Bay Packers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Michigan Wolverines, and the Kansas Jayhawks.  When I'm not watching football or basketball, you can probably find me with my nose in my Kindle reading a great book!

I hope you enjoy visiting this site to learn more about the elementary counseling program at St. Ansgar Elementary School.
