Hello DME family, 

My name is Brittany Chadwick, and I am the counselor at McClatchey Elementary.  I began my career in education in 2005 and have served as a classroom teacher and guidance counselor. My husband and I have two boys of our own and we love spending time outdoors together - hiking, traveling, or on a ballfield. 

Character education is extremely important to our youth, and I thoroughly enjoy teaching life skills through guidance lessons and small groups.  Our district mission is to educate students by empowering them to maximize their potential, and we help facilitate that through our comprehensive guidance program.  We also help organize charity events, promote college and career readiness and encourage student leadership.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions, needs, or concerns.  We are all here to make sure that school is a wonderful experience for your child!
