My name is Kristi Bahr and I am a halftime instructional coach and halftime interventionist. I earned my BA from Central College and my Masters from Viterbo University. I have taught special education, 5th grade and an instructional coach in Des Moines Public Schools and Sioux City Community Schools.
My husband and I live in Van Meter with our two elementary age children.
I have been the school counselor at Madison Elementary School since 2004. I received my undergraduate degree from Drake University and my master’s degree from Iowa State University. I also continue to take classes and attend conferences so I can learn more to help me be the best counselor I can be!
At Madison, I work with students individually, in small groups, and in large group during weekly classroom counseling. My work with students focuses on social/emotional development, academic success, and career exploration.
I want all of our students to be successful with their attendance, behavior and achievement as a part of our Madison Community.
In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, travel, and read a good book!
