Hello, Ascension Catholic School Community! KaDee Ezell is the new School Counselor for Ascension Catholic School! She was raised in La Grange, KY (just east of Louisville) where she attended Oldham County Schools. After high school, she pursued her bachelor’s degree in Communications and her master’s degree in School Guidance Counseling, both at Spalding University. Her education and training are based on the American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) National Model and Strengths-Based School Counseling Framework.
KaDee’s background has not only been working in education as a counselor intern and substitute teacher, but she has also spent many years in direct sales where she obtained unique skills that have proved to be useful in her career as a counselor. She has a burning passion to advocate for our youth by inspiring, motivating and empowering them to reach their fullest potential in life-academically, socially, emotionally, spiritually and in becoming ready to transition to life beyond K-12. In addition, she believes it is important to advocate for our parents, teachers and community. She also believes that in order to help students thrive, you have to work collaboratively with teachers, parents, and all staff members of the school and parish community.
KaDee’s greatest blessing is getting to be a mother to 3 children- Jared (14), Brody (10) and Mia (7). In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, working out at the gym, playing corn-hole, bullet journaling, reading books for pleasure and personal development, and watching her oldest son race Legend Cars (NASCAR affiliated).
KaDee is thrilled to start the 2020-2021 school year off with the Ascension Catholic School community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to her with any questions. Ms. Ezell’s door is always open!
