Mrs. Schwam's Guidance Webpage
Welcome back to another school year. My name is Rebecca Schwam and I am the guidance counselor at WES. I would like to take this opportunity to explain my roles as the guidance counselor. As the elementary guidance counselor, I support children with their academic and social development. I explain my role to your children describing myself as the feelings teacher in the building. This means that I make sure that every child feels safe and comfortable here at school. To you, this means I support your child with self-esteem, social skills, making friends, family changes such as divorce or death in the family, bullying, anxiety, peer relationships,organizational skills and conflict resolution. I see students through guidance lessons, one-on-one, in groups, lunch bunch sessions, and conflict resolution. Here is a more detailed description of my programs.
