Hello!  My name is Michele Kaster and I have been a Counselor since 1997, I began my career in Community Mental Health as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor.  I worked as  a Prevention Interventionist through OESD 114 in the Elementary levels and became certified as a School Counselor. Throughout my career I have worked in both Mental health as a Child and Family Therapist, and a School Counselor in both the Elementary and High School settings.  I joined Chimacum School District 2015-2016 school year. My varied experiences allow me to connect with children/ families and work to decrease stressors on students to enable them to engage in their learning.

I am Married and have two teenage children. When I am not at School you will find me hiking, gardening, listening to live music, cooking and playing on our local beaches.

I am happy to return to School Counseling and have some new programs kicking off this year.  I will be introducing Meaningful Work jobs at the Elementary.  Second Step and other Social Skills lessons will be taught to increase students problem solving and communication skills from K-5th grade. Small groups will also be offered this year.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Looking forward to meeting you!
