Hello Bulldog Families!
I am so excited to be here as your school social worker this year! This is my first year at WESA, and my third in the district. Yet, the Widefield community is home for me as a graduate of the district.
As a school social worker, I have the pleasure and honor of working with students in the following ways:
Classroom guidance lessons
Facilitating groups focused on social skills and emotional regulation skills
Providing individual counseling and social-emotional support to students
Providing social-emotional instruction to qualifying special education students
Assisting with crisis support when needed
I believe that student success is related to a thriving home environment. However, every household has difficult seasons. Thus, I am happy to work with your family in the following ways:
Support with community resources through partnerships with community agencies for:
Financial resources for rent, utilities, etc.
Support with understanding what behaviors you see at home and how school and home strategies can relate
Everyone says it takes a community to raise a child. I would be honored to be a part of your family’s community. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any needs you may have. I look forward to partnering with you to make it a great school year!
