About Me
I have been a school social worker for Parkway for 5 years. I love my job and the opportunity to address challenges that keep students from learning. I work in the West Area and have great colleagues that work collaboratively together.
We have two daughters, 24 and 20 years old. Glenn and I have been married 28 years--yikes that sounds so long! We are very blessed every day by family, friends and work.

We know some of our students can quickly feel an injustice has occurred (maybe a lower grade than expected, or a not making a team) and feel passionate about righting…

OK, here goes my first attempt at posting... As a district social worker, I may be the only non-teacher in the group. Often the professional development classes don't pertain to the work we do, so I was excited to see a course that is relevant to my work with students and a topic that is an integral part of their lives. Now, if only I can get up to half their speed in turns of knowledge and skills... As someone who hasn't even set up a Facebook account, because I don't think I have the time…
