Easiest way to communicate with me is through email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I hold a BA degree (Sociology) from Appalachian State University and a BS degree (BSW) from UNC-G. I also completed teacher certification work at Catawba College and hold licenses in School Social Work and Social Studies 6-9. I have worked for the Davie County School System for 30+ years in a variety of positions. I became a school social worker in 1992 and the Lead in 2003.
I enjoy working with the Ellis staff and students. My goal is to help your child become a successful adult. My main areas of concentration are on attendance and helping students/families access needed resources. I also work closely with the school counselor and school nurse.
Some things that might be helpful:
Always send a note when your child is absent. Absences are excused with notes due to lawful reasons (see DCS Policy 4400). Students with 6 or more unexcused absences is a concern so I will be contacting students and parents to discuss ways we can improve attendance. If you have questions about attendance feel free to email me.
Also, tardies (late to school) and leave earlies that are unexcused accumulate and school consequences are imposed. Please be sure to return with a doctor note if your child has been to see the doctor/dentist/other medical provider.
From time to time we all need a helping hand. I know the community well and there may be resources available that would benefit your student/family. Again, I am happy to discuss this with you and help you connect to those resources.
Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.
