Hello and WELCOME to the Special Education and Related Services (SERS) page of the Westgate Elementary School website. We are very pleased to be a part of Westgate Elementary School this year and are looking forward to working with your children. 

The SERS team consists of:  Barb Gale, Sheila McFather, and Terese Hutchins, as our Special Education Teachers.  These teachers can be seen teaching groups in their room or in the classroom with small groups of students.  They provide interventions in the areas of reading, writing, and math.  

Susan Hickey is our Speech-Language Pathologist. She is very pleased to be able to work with the children helping them to develop their articulation and receptive/expressive language skills. 

Chris Reed is our School Psychologist. He is looking forward to working with children, teachers, and parents, to give kids the skills they need to have a successful school year.  

Michelle Auer is our Occupational Therapist (OT).  Michelle is looking forward to working with students to help develop their fine motor skills in order to be successful in the classroom.

 If you have any questions, please feel free to contact one of us.
