Mr. Zach Nauschutz

My name is Zach Nauschutz. I am the school counselor for 2nd - 4th grades and look forward to supporting students as they navigate the beginning stages of their educational journey. I am originally from a small town in eastern Wisconsin (Go Pack Go!!) I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and my Master's from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. In my free time I like to play volleyball competitively, spend time with friends, play with my dogs, visit family, go to the cabin, explore our many lakes, and read. 

Throughout the school year, I teach social/emotional, career, and academic counseling lessons, run counseling groups on a variety of topics, and am available to meet with students individually to provide short-term counseling services. I will be collaborating with the other counselors, social workers, teachers, and families to support our students to be the best they can be.

 

Services:

Classroom Lessons: I teach preventative classroom counseling lessons throughout the school year. Lesson topics include but are not limited to: bully prevention, coping skills, personal safety, and academic success. Students can use the skills learned from these lessons as they continue to navigate life.  

Group Counseling: Teachers and parents can refer students for small group skills work throughout the year. Groups typically run 30 minutes, once or twice a week, for up to eight weeks. Topics vary but include: social skills, friendship skills, family change, coping skills, focus, growth mindset, following directions, personal responsibility, and academic skills. Small groups typically begin in October.

Individual Counseling: I will meet with students for a variety of reasons. Teachers, parents, or the students themselves can request for me to meet with a student. Individual sessions might target family change, goal setting, peer conflict and resolution, coping skills, and anxiety. Individual counseling is not therapy, though it is brief and solution-focused. Individual counseling is confidential.
