"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much"--Helen Keller

Hello!  My name is Shelly Bielen and I am the school counselor at Kasson-Mantorville High School. This is my nineteenth year as a School Counselor; my sixteenth year at Kasson-Mantorville Public Schools. Previous to K-M, I worked for three years as a Middle School Counselor in the Rosemount-Eagan-Apple Valley School District.

I earned my educational degrees from UW-Eau Claire and Winona State University.  I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology with a minor in Family Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and my
 Masters of Science Degree in School Counseling was earned at Winona State University.  

I currently live in Byron with my husband, Chad, our thirteen year old son, Reid, and our seven-year old shitzu-bichon mix dog, Jake.  I enjoy reading, running, listening to music, and spending time with family and friends.

This school year I will continue working, primarily, with juniors and seniors and my colleague/school social worker, Mrs. Klingfus, will be working with our freshmen and sophomore students.  We hope to provide you will lots of support and resources as you move through your high school years.

If you have questions, concerns, or need to set up an appointment please feel free to contact me at 507-634-2981 or by email.

I look forward to getting to know you and your families this year!
