My name is Kara Elmer. I am the Bell School counselor. I am a Marblehead resident and have been for over 10 years. My son Luke is a fifth grader at The Village School and my daughter Grace is a 7th grader at the Veteran's Middle School. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from Salem State and a Bachelors Degree from Stonehill College. . I have worked in outpatient clinics as a therapist with children and families. I also spent many years working in various schools in Salem, Malden, Beverly and Everett. My favorite age children to work with is lower elementary which is why I am here at Bell School. I have been at Bell School for 6 years and love the strong sense of community here. In my free time, I enjoy boating, skiing, hiking, basketball, running, and spending time with my family.
