Hi! I am the West Middle School Social Worker. Overall, School Social Workers help students with a variety of needs that may impact their learning and social-emotional wellbeing. I help support families with resources that may be needed for basic necessities, adolescent mental health, positive attendance, and many other needs that students and families may encounter that can be a barrier to education. I will work hard and do my very best to advocate for students when it comes to supporting their needs and any barriers that may stand in the way of being their best self here at West Middle School.
Families can reach out to me regarding 504 Accommodation Plans, attendance support, mental health concerns, homelessness and many other areas in which I can be a resource.
