Suzie Krisch

12th Grade Counselor

I am entering my 20th year as a Counselor at McCluer High School.   I have spent my entire professional career in Counseling helping young adults.  I believe that education is the cornerstone of preparing to be a successful adult, myself being a lifelong learner.   Counseling is not just my profession but it is my passion.   

I earned my Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice and Social Work from the University of Missouri St. Louis and my Master's Degree in School Counseling from Lindenwood University.    

I am a proud parent of a son who is in 10th grade.  I enjoy spending time with him and my loud Italian family when I am not working.
