Hello, my name is Cathy Birden, and I am so excited to start this new school year!!!  This will be my 13th year of experience in education including 5 years of teaching 5th grade and 3 years in 3rd grade in Spring ISD plus 4 years of counseling in Klein. I graduated from The University of Texas in Austin with a BA in Psychology, and I received my M.Ed. in Counseling from Sam Houston. I am also a licensed LPC. I have an amazing husband of 9 years, and we have 2 beautiful children, Kamryn (5) & Jacob (2).

As counselor of Kuehnle Elementary School, my goal is to ensure that each student experiences success academically, emotionally, and socially. I believe that every student is unique and can achieve, succeed, and become a life long learner. My goal is to foster a safe and positive learning environment, in which each student can realize his or her own individuality and self-worth. I work with students individually, in small groups, and with entire classes on topics that include social skills,  problem solving, bullying and self-esteem. I am available to conference with you should you have a question or concern regarding your child. I also have a collection of books and other materials on a variety of topics that you are welcome to check out. ?

I look forward to working along side students, parents, and a wonderful faculty and staff to ensure a productive and successful 2013-2014 school year! Please feel free to contact me at (832) 484-6631 or cbirden1@kleinisd.net if you have any questions, concerns, or information that you feel would help me better meet the needs of your child.
