Hello! You may be wondering what a School Social Worker does. I'm here to help students and families reduce any barriers that keep a student from being all he or she can be. As the School Social Worker, I am available to help students throughout the school day with social, emotional, or behavioral concerns, as well as help your family get in touch with helpful community resources you may need. I am a link between school, families, and the community to help all students reach their full potential. As a Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) accredited provider, I am able to meet with parents one-on-one to offer parenting tips and tools. Great attendance is important for students to be successful, so I also work with students and families to encourage and improve attendance. Feel free to contact me for more information or any student concerns.Shelli Altopp-Miller
