National School Counseling Week | Meet Our Counselors!

Hello Arcadia Students and Families, 

My name is Mikayla Meyer and I am the school counselor and guidance teacher at Arcadia Elementary School. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Superior last year with a Master's degree in K-12 Counseling. I also hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a minor in Human Development and Family studies. 

I currently live in Eau Claire with my partner, Aaron, and our adorable dog, Floki. I moved here less than one year ago and I have loved it! I love to hike, garden, and just about anything else that gives me an excuse to be outdoors. In the colder months, I enjoy hot beverages and good company along with the occasional football game. Go Pack Go!

I look forward to working with you this Spring.

Hello all,

My name is Sarah Kyes, my students call me Ms. Kyes (rhymes with eyes). I’m the school counselor for Arcadia Middle School and I’m also supporting at Arcadia High School. This is the start of my third year of school counseling and I have enjoyed getting to know the students, families and staff here.

My office is located on the second floor of the middle school. Here you can find me meeting with students, reaching out to families and connecting with community resources. I often work with students who are struggling with negative emotions, low-self-esteem and challenges making friends. 

I’m a new homeowner and get to make the beautiful drive down from Eau Claire each day. In my free time I enjoy cooking, spending time with my family and snuggling with my cat. 

I’m excited to get to know all of you better.

Hello Arcadia Students & Families,

My name is Molly Serum and I am serving the Arcadia School District as a school counselor at both the Elementary and High School levels. I love being able to work with such differing ages as they each bring their unique joys and challenges. 

I have a Masters degree in School Counseling from Winona State University and a Bachelors degree in Leadership, Communication, and Advocacy from Winona State as well. When I am not at school, you can find me spending time with family and friends or taking my puppy Cooper on long walks. I enjoy attending concerts, plays, and comedy clubs, too! 

I am honored to be working with your students this year. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns that may arise throughout the school year.
