School Social Worker
Please reach out to me with questions
or to discuss ways to best support your student.
I have office hours every day, Monday through Friday,
during this time out of the school buildings.
We can talk by phone, email, or Google Hangout.
Please let me know what works best for you.
Email is the best way to initiate contact at this time.
