I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kathleen Breede and I have been a teacher in the Newport Public Schools for over thirty years. In January of 2022, I was appointed the position of School Counselor at Pell Elementary School and I couldn't be more thrilled. I received my master's degree in counseling from Providence College back in the mid 1990's and have always wanted to be a counselor at the elementary level. I am thrilled this opportunity opened up. I teach whole class SEL (social emotional learning) lessons, work with small groups for various needs and also meet with students individually. Please don't hesitate to reach out if your child needs any assistance.
All the best,
