My name is Erica Churilla and I am the counselor for students with last names A-L. I have a bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in middle school Science, and a Masters in Education, School Counseling from Purdue University Calumet. I taught 8th grade Science for five years before completing my counseling degree. I spent nine years as a counselor at Lake Central High School before becoming a Clark Coyote. I truly enjoy the middle school age, and look forward to working with students from 5th grade to 8th grade, as this time is a unique transition. I am available to assist with academic, personal, and social concerns. I can also provide families with information on outside resources and to answer questions. I really look forward to meeting all of my students and their families at Clark Middle School!
