Counselor's Corner

10 months ago

This is Tacy Bressler’s third year at Rickard Elementary School, her 15th as a school counselor. She worked with high school students for eight years and elementary students for seven years. She is a graduate of South Dakota State University and is originally from South Dakota.

"I always knew I wanted to be in a helping profession, and so after several years in the workforce, with three small children, I decided to go back to school and get my Master’s degree. I love my job and can’t imagine doing anything else. Seeing kids become more confident in themselves and realizing their potential is what keeps me going! I love it when the “light” comes on, and their faces light up with joy!

I do whatever is needed during the school day. From working with kids, to teaching lessons, to small groups! I enjoy helping out in the lunch room, and interacting with the kids. I have started Mrs.’s B’s Shoe Tying University, on Friday afternoons for those kids who can’t tie their shoes yet!  My motto is, “Be nice, because nice matters!”"

Fun Fact:  I love to hunt and am planning a trip to shoot a bear with my bow, in the near future!
