Hello NCSD Families,
This will be my second year as the Family Outreach Coordinator for Newark CSD! My experience with Newark has been wonderful so far. I love engaging with and learning from our families, students, and our community. During my time here at Newark, I have worked with families, grades K-12, locate resources throughout the community; whether that is finding a program for a student, providing information to parent's about services or allocating resources to homeless families. I have also worked with each of the buildings in the district to help increase family and community engagement through the District's Tenet VI initiative.
Adding to that, I have facilitated an afterschool program with our Middle School students and a Mentoring Program at both the Middle School and Kelley School. This program is where High School students mentored younger students to form positive relationships. I have worked with the HS students in the IT'S REAL Group - run by Danielle Ohlson - and have worked with students of color throughout the district by maximizing their opportunities for growth socially and emotionally. Also, I have led a summer program for at-risk students, and have helped coordinate students to attend.
I graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 2016 with a Degree in Sociology and I am now currently working towards my Master of Clinical Social Work Degree through Keuka College. I truly enjoy making connections with our students and our families and I am fully committed to working with our NCSD Community.
If you have any questions about myself or my program, please feel free to contact me through email or phone.
I look forward to continuing my work with the Newark community!
