School Social Work in the Educational Setting

  • “Working Together. Removing Barriers. Empowering Students.”

    School Social Workers look at the whole child by using a holistic approach that includes home, school, and the community. For over a hundred years, School Social Workers have been in the role of liaison between students, teachers, and families at home to assist in reducing barriers to student achievement.


    As the School Social Worker at THE Shining Mountain I assist with school-wide supports including Tier 1 social-emotional learning and prevention programs, Tier 2 & Tier 3 indirect and direct service, and facilitate needed services from the school and community agencies. I am also the Section 504 Coordinator for our school.
