Hi there! I’m Nikki Kresky, the school counselor here at Barnum Elementary. The 2019-2020 school year will be my 6th year at Barnum Elementary. I am so lucky to get to do this job and work with these students every day!

A little information about my background: I have a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Minnesota Duluth (my hometown) as well as my master’s degree in Education specializing in School Counseling from the University of Wisconsin- Superior! I’ve been lucky enough to have had the chance to work with all different levels of school aged children; however, my passion is for elementary age! I love children’s imaginations, resiliency, creativity, and zest for life! It’s contagious! I am thrilled to be here at Barnum Elementary with such a great staff, amazing parents, and fantastic kiddos!

When I’m not at school, my number one priority is my family. I’ve been married for 7 years to my wonderful husband, Chad, and together we have two awesome kids–Lincoln (5) and Stella (3).

I am also lucky enough to get to bring my awesome furry sidekick Walter with me to school, a few days a each week. Walter is my two year old, Golden Retriever who is also a Therapy Dog.
