Hello My name is Michele Lesniak and I am the School Social Worker at MCES. This is my fourth year at MCES but I have worked with WCPSS for about 20 years! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified School Social Worker. I have a Masters degree in Social Worker from University of NY at Buffalo (GO Bills!). I love my job and working with the students and their families. School Social Workers help to remove barriers to learning and to a child being successful in school. Some examples of these barriers could include homelessness, high absences, mental health issues, limited resources to meet basic needs like clothing, food, and shelter. School Social Workers work closely with the Student Support Services Team to help connect the School, Family and Community.

Hello! This is my third year as a school nurse at Middle Creek Elementary. I have continued to enjoy working with many of the students, parents and staff here at MCES. I graduated with a BSN from UNC and have been involved with working with the pediatric population my entire career. The school nurse's primary role is identifying students with chronic illnesses and helping them to manage their health condition in the school setting. As a school nurse, I am very focused on case managing individual students with chronic illnesses to ensure these students are healthy and attending school regularly. School nurses in Wake County are assigned to more than one school. Although I am not at MCE every day I am always available as a health resource by phone and email.
