Ken Hile - Tier 1 School Counselor (grades 10/11/12, P thru Z)

     I am a school counselor and the military/college liaison for Free State.  2021-22 will be my ninth year as a school counselor and my 34th year overall.  For 23 years, I taught both high school and middle school students English and History for Topeka, Emporia, Salina, and Lawrence public schools, plus I worked as a substitute teacher for 2 years.     

     When counseling students, I emphasize personal responsibility and self-advocacy skill building.  I assist students by providing guidance with personal, social, and academic choices for success while in high school and beyond.

     Prior to teaching I gained life experience as a Sergeant in the United States Air Force for both the 52nd Combat Support Group-Spangdahlem and the 323rd Air Base Group-Mather, Brakeman for the AT&SF Railway, and Nuclear Station Operator for Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation.

     I am a native Kansan, and I received my B.S., M.S., and Teacher License at Emporia State University.
