Welcome to West Side Elementary!
    My name is Mrs. Bigler! I am the school social worker at West Side. 
    What does a school social worker do? We provide early interventions to students in need. Early identification and intervention of social and personal needs is imperative to remove the barriers for learning. Some of the interventions provided but are not limited to crisis intervention and prevention, social skills, classroom guidance, emotional and behavioral support, and referrals to outside agencies.  
    Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
