Mrs. Erica Williams

Welcome to Redcliffe Elementary’s school counseling program webpage. My name is Erica Williams. I am the school counselor at Redcliffe and I am so excited to help you in any way that I can.

Background info:

My husband, daughter and I live in Graniteville, SC. I drive to Redcliffe because it is a remarkable school. The students and staff are amazing. I love working at Redcliffe. 

I worked at Redcliffe for two school years as a student service worker. Although I loved it at Redcliffe I decided to embark on a new journey with early intervention. I work as an early interventionist for a year and was offered an opportunity to work with children in foster care and did that for about 7 years. I decided to go back to school and get my master of education in school counseling.  January of 2010 was busy and life changing I graduated with my masters degree and we were blessed with our daughter.  In September of 2010 I returned to Redcliffe as the school counselor.

Summer Plans:

This summer I plan to take a couple of trips with my family. I plan to read the book The Leader in Me by Stephen R. Covey to learn new ways to inspire greatness at Redcliffe. I want help students to become great leaders.  I also want to do more research on growth mindset and how to implement growth mindset activities into our data driven school counseling program.  

Hobbies:

  • I like to read and listen to audiobooks
  • I like to listen to podcast from different educational leaders
  • I like to swim and love being outside
  • I volunteer for our churches children’s ministry
  • I am a Girl Scout leader
  • I am a member of ASCA
  • I love Clemson football—Go Tigers!

    Additional safety measures have become part of Aiken County Public Schools’ volunteer requirements.  To ensure the safety of our students and preparation of our volunteers, we are hosting volunteer trainings throughout the year. All interested volunteers including those attend a field trip must attend training and receive the appropriate background clearance for their intended volunteer service before serving in our school. This has to be done every school year.  Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation as we implement additional safety measures.

    If you have any questions please contact us at 803-827-3350.
