I have been a School Social Worker for a total of eleven years. I currently work in a small district in Illinois in two schools which include preK through 5th grade. As I am the only social worker in my two schools (and there is no counselor), I provide counseling and social skills training to all students who need it. I also provide social skills classroom groups for all classes from preK to 5th grade.
As a School Social Worker, who provides whole classroom groups as well as individual counseling, I feel like I am enthusiastic, positive, understanding, and a good listener.
I have a Masters Degree in School Social Work from the University of Illinois.
I am married and a mother to two wonderful boys, 14 year old Ryan and 8 year old Jimmy.
