Meet your School Counselor

Erin Schlecht

Candler Elementary

I am looking forward to a great school year at Candler Elementary! I am excited to be here and enjoy getting to know every student throughout the year. This will be my third year at Candler. I work primarily with K-2 students providing monthly classroom guidance lessons, small group counseling, and individual counseling. My schedule at Candler is Monday and Thursday from 7:15-3:15 and Wednesday from 9:00-1:00.

Before coming to Candler, I was a school counselor at Barnardsville Elementary. Previously, I was employed by Haywood County Schools before moving to Buncombe County. I graduated from Western Carolina University with my Master’s degree in School Counseling in 2001. In 2005, I received a Post-Master’s Certificate in Advanced School Counseling from UNC-G. I am also a Nationally Certified School Counselor.

Please let me know if I can assist you or your child in any way!
