Counselors Corner


Benzie Academy


My name is Becky Kik and I have been a school counselor for about 22 years. I have recently accepted the new counseling position at Benzie Academy working with students grades 6-12, both virtually and in person. I am originally from Wisconsin (GO PACKERS), but I have worked for Kalkaska Schools in Michigan since 2004. I graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in Minnesota with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education K-6. I student taught in Australia 5th/6th grade and then I attended Northern Michigan University and received my Masters in School Counseling K-12.
I grew up on the small lakes of Northern Wisconsin, so you will find me somewhere on the water-boating, jet skiing, fishing, swimming, or kayaking. I also enjoy walking, knitting, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I have a tiny toy poodle named Hooch, and I believe he will be making some virtual appearances with my students.
I strongly believe parent-counselor communication is a vital part of student success, please call or email me at any time.
