Nicole Salm

Guidance Counselor

Hello, my name is Nicole Salm and I am the school counselor at Classical School. I will be here on Mondays this year. I graduated from UW- Madison with a Bachelor of Science Degree and completed my Master’s Degree in Counseling through UW-Whitewater. I am very familiar with the Appleton Area School District as I am a former alum myself and my children are currently receiving a top-notch education through the Appleton Area School District.

After being away for ten years, I was happy to return to Appleton where I was born and raised. Upon completion of college graduation, I lived in three states in a time span of four years so that my husband could complete his medical residency. While living in Chicago, I commuted back to Wisconsin to complete the final two years of my graduate degree. While we really enjoyed our time living in Grand Rapids, MI and Chicago, we were so happy when our paths finally led us back to our hometown of Appleton!

After moving back, I fulfilled some long-term substitute assignments as an elementary and high school counselor before becoming a high school counselor in a neighboring city. I remained there until my third child came along and I decided to focus on child-rearing. Although I really enjoyed being home and raising my children, I really missed working as a school counselor. I am very excited to be able to experience the best of both worlds as a part-time school counselor at Classical School and a stay-at-home mother on my days off!

My husband, Doug, and I have three children ages 10, 7, and 2 years old as well as a border collie named Maddie. In our spare time, we enjoy traveling and spending time at our cottage on Shawano Lake where we enjoy boating, swimming, and hanging out by the campfire. In addition to hanging out with my family, I enjoy reading, jogging, and attending an occasional sporting event. Go Packers and Badgers!

I am very excited to be working with the students and families at Classical School! If you are in the school and have a moment to spare, please stop by and say hello. I can also be reached by e-mail at I am looking forward to meeting you and having an excellent school year!
