Hello! My name is Kelsey Prather Eplee and I am the school counselor at CLPE. This is my first year working at CLPE and I was lucky enough to intern with Ann Lawler Perry a few years ago. I am extremely grateful to be part of such a resilient and emotionally intelligent school and community. 

Ann Lawler-Perry

SEL Guidance Teacher

My name is Ann Lawler Perry and I will be your child’s Guidance Teacher for the 2022-2023 school year.  After nearly 30 years as an Integrated Services teacher then counselor at CLPE, I retired as the school counselor last spring.   However,  I’ve returned to teach most Thursdays and Fridays throughout the school year.  Once a Pirate, Always a Pirate!! 

Social Emotional Support at CLPE:

Trauma - responsive school and Yoga Calm

Over the last couple of years, CLPE has become a trauma-responsive school and a multidisciplinary program. Starting to understand how students who have experienced trauma can be best supported through relationships, repetition, consistency, as well as training staff and creating an inclusive, welcoming environment that is trauma responsive. We are always learning new tools and strategies with our students. The last couple years, we have been implementing an evidence based curriculum called Yoga Calm, that encourages regulation through breath work, movement, and of course yoga. Each grade level experiences Yoga Calm as a class, as well as in smaller groups. This curriculum encourages students to focus and become engaged in their classes and helps them self-regulate throughout their day.

Weekly Guidance - Social Emotional Learning

Guidance will be one of the specials offered at CLPE. It is a class that will provide lessons that promote knowledge, attitudes, and skills through instruction in three content areas: academic achievement, career development, and personal/social growth. Students will be taught learning strategies, self- management and social skills, along with curricula that help foster self-knowledge, self-control, and problem solving. In addition, students will learn yoga and grounding skills that will support learning, balance, physical/mental/emotional strength, stillness, listening, caring and an appreciation for community.

Small Group/Individual Counseling

At CLPE, we provide universal social emotional learning through guidance lessons. We strive to equip all students with healthy coping skills, feelings of belongingness, and resiliency.

We provide individual counseling and group counseling for a variety of reasons. We support groups for a variety of reasons, such as anxiety, grief, friendships, social skills, decision making, executive functioning, etc.


Please reach out to the mental health team if you ever have any questions about how we support students and families, and or if there is anything we can help you with! We love our Pirates!
