5Essentials Survey

The 5Essentials Parent, Teacher and Student Surveys are now open.  All surveys are open until February 14, 2020. 

My Schedule 2017-2018

This year my schedule looks a little different, or it will eventually anyway.  I will be beginning the year in classrooms every other week, including kindergarten.  As we receive data back from a schoolwide social/emotional screening called SAEBRS, my time will be spend a little differently.  The goal is for social workers across the district to focus on students who need a little extra boost with their social and emotional development, while backing away from classroom lesson delivery.  I'm excited to move toward a new model.

If you need to reach me, Wednesdays and Fridays are the best days.  Of course you can call or stop by ANYTIME, but please understand if I'm with students, you might have a little wait.


At Black Hawk Elementary School I provide student support in a variety of ways from classroom lessons regarding social and emotional development to crisis intervention. If you have any questions or would like your son or daughter to see me for help through a particularly hard time for him or her (divorce, death, illness/injury, job loss, etc). I am also available for brief individual or group interventions for things such as anger management, impuse control, anxiety and self-esteem.
