The School Social Work Office is a resource for students, families, faculty and staff. Social work services provide support in the areas of social/emotional development and social interactions. Services may include group or individual counseling, as well as consultation with parents, teachers, administrators and community service providers. The school social work office also provides referrals to community agencies when appropriate.It is my belief that all children should have the opportunity to learn in an environment that is nurturing and safe, where each child is given an opportunity to reach their fullest potential and feel their own degree of success. I believe that children have their own distinctive character, and should be encouraged to express themselves openly and respectfully.As a school social worker I am responsible for helping to promote a culture that is free from prejudices and intolerance; that embraces each child's gifts and abilities and encourages continuous growth throughout their academic career.
