Hi Students & Families -
I am the school social worker at Open World Learning (OWL).
This is my second year at OWL but have been a school social worker for the last 19 years.
l love working with youth and their families!
I meet with students who may struggle with social and emotional concerns.
I also can refer families/students who are in need of help and support to community agencies.
Some of them are listed below.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you!
