My name is Karla Thielbar. I am excited to start my second year as the school counselor at South Park Elementary School. I have worked in the District for the past 17 years. I was a classroom teacher for 15 years, teaching grades 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. I have a Masters in Instructional Technology and am currently pursing another Master's Degree in School Counseling. I love working with the students, families and staff at South Park and am proud to call it my home. This allows me to support students in a new role to meet their academic, career, and social/emotional development needs.
When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two sons, our dogs. I spend a lot of time with my boys and their extra-curricular activites, but in our free time we love to go camping and off roading.Sincerely,
Mrs. ThielbarSchool Counselor
