Kalii Roller - School Counselor

Hello My Name Is...

Kalii Roller 

 I am so excited to be back at John Pittard for my second year!  A little about me, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology at MTSU in 2008 and my Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling at Argosy in 2012.  I recently finished my school counseling license through TSU.  I have also recently completed all the requirements for my LPC-MHSP licensure after working on that under a licensed supervisor for the past 3 and a half years!  Prior to coming to John Pittard at the start of last school year, I had been working in Mental Health for 7 years.  I had been doing a variety of work with children and families through in-home services, specialized crisis services for children and youth and two years of school based therapy at an Elementary School in Nashville.

On a personal note...my husband Jason and I got married in 2013 and we have 3 sweet fur babies - Homer, Baxter and Chloe.  I was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago and that will always be "home" but I have called Murfreesboro home for the past 13 years. I love music and am obsessed with sports - particularly Football, Hockey and Baseball.  Spending time with my family and friends is the most important to me.

My education and counseling philosophy is that children are the future and if we want a bright future, our best efforts should go into helping the children grow into the amazing individuals we all know they can be.  Encourage them to always reach for their goals and never give up.  Teach them to always give their best efforts.  And always remember that every child is different and needs to be met where they are and to be addressed according to their needs. 

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns!  I am looking forward to work with you and your students this year!
