As the school social worker, I serve as a link between you, the student, your family, your community and the school. My job is to provide support to you in your pursuit of academic excellence and social success. As the school social worker, I promote student success by addressing issues related to attendance, homeless education, child abuse and neglect, and coping with everyday crisis situations (i.e. behavioral, economic or familial). If you are experiencing any anxiety or pressure attending school, please request a visit to see me. I am available to serve you Monday –Friday between 7:30AM-4:45PM. I can be contacted after hours as well. For more information about services and resource inform your teacher, principal or parent about a referral.
