Welcome students and families!! I am excited to introduce myself as your new School Social Worker at Greenlawn and Guilford Elementary Schools.
Originally I am from the Oneonta area, attending OHS and graduating from SUNY Oneonta with a degree in Sociology. I relocated to South Jersey and continued my education, receiving my Master’s degree in Social Work from Rutgers University.
Before joining the Bainbridge-Guilford Central School District, I worked in South Jersey at a Medical Day Care Program for Children. I have also worked with children and families in the foster care system.
My goal for your children this coming year is to focus on their strengths, building a healthy and positive character to prepare them for the future. Although this takes hard work and dedication, I believe a little TLC and some fun activities will make us successful. I truly believe the best approach to this success is a team approach with the help of our families and educators working together.
I believe there are great things ahead of us this year at Greenlawn and I am looking forward to being a part of your community. Thank you.
