School Social Workers Website - Social Worker
Welcome to the JSHS School Social Workers Website!
There are many areas to the website that I know you will find great value in. My goal is to make the website not just a tool for me as the social worker to connect with parents, but also a learning tool and resource for students, families and faculty.
The School Social Worker is here to help everyone! School Social Workers are licensed as well as certified pupil personal providers with diverse skills. School Social Workers bring knowledge and skills to schools to assist in furthering their purpose to provide a safe, calm, setting for teaching and learning.
I currently work with students in grades 7-12 on developing skills to help them cope with concerns that they may face. Individualized services may include short & long term individual & group counseling. Meetings and lessons with the School Social Worker can enhance self-esteem, interpersonal skills, and give students the opportunity to learn and practice positive behaviors. Working with the School Social Worker helps students learn more about feelings, making good and safe choices, and about getting along with others.
Services are available to all students through parental or teacher referral. Students can also request to speak with me if he/she feels they may need someone to talk with. I am also available to consult and talk with school staff and parents about various topics, and to provide resources and/or referrals if needed. Please contact me if you feel I may be able to help.
