"Empowerment is the key to student success"

I have worked in the NPS for almost 20 years in a variety of positions. Currently I am the Social Worker for NES and NIS. Past positions have been developing and implementing the first Options program in NHS and expanding it to CPS and working in the Summer Extended Day program with the NHS IDSC program. As a social worker I am fortunate to work collaborately with both teachers and families in addition to working with students. With this collaborative approach a greater understanding of a student is achieved and therefore the best solution to a problem can often be found. In addition, I provide social skills training for many groups of children and work closely with the Student Support Center and the various Options program.
