Matthew Wukitsch, M.S.W. (also known as Mr. W)
I’ve been working with children and adolescents for 28 years (!) – 10 years with Catholic Charities working with youth in specialized foster care, and 18 years working with special education students in both therapeutic and general education settings. I started working at Opportunity School (now East View Academy) in 2011 and remain infinitely grateful for the chance to invest in such amazing students.
In addition to working with students at East View Academy, I am a certified instructor in Nonviolent Crisis Intervention for District 308, as well as a community based Youth Mental Health First Aid instructor. I strongly believe in using a strengths-based approach in working with students, and that every student deserves to be treated with the utmost dignity and respect. I recognize that it’s truly an honor to be working at East View Academy!
