Mrs. Kristi Painter

My name is Kristi Painter and I am the School Counselor for students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade. This is my fourth year at Harrisburg Elementary School. My role as your student's School Counselor is to provide support through individual counseling, small group counseling, and classroom instruction. 

A little bit about me...I spend a lot of time with my family (Husband and two children). We have a miniature Golden Doodle named Ellie Mae. She goes everywhere with us (mountains, beach, chick-fil-a drive thrus, parks, you name it...she goes). When I'm not spending time with my family, you can usually find me exercising or drinking coffee (but not at the same time....haha).

I can't wait to meet my NEW 3rd Grade Students, reunite with my NOW 4th and 5th Graders, and meet all the NEW students at HES. Even though this year is starting off very different than before, I believe it is going to be one of the BEST years yet!! If you would like to contact me, please email me at 

Now............let's get this school year started!!!
