Emotional and Behavioral Support
Erin Klocek is the Family School Coordinator at WES; she has been a part of our community since 2011. She works with children, teachers, parents and the community to assist students in developing their full potential. One of the school’s most important counseling goals is to help children form a favorable self-image and to give them confidence in meeting new challenges, both in and out of school. She meets with some students on a regular basis to help with on-going needs as determined by the school and families, and she is available to all students for support as needed. She regularly works with small groups in her office to help students with things like anger, stress, friendship troubles, social skills and family issues. She also provides support to families in many different capacities.
