As a school social worker, I provide individual and group counseling for 5th - 8th grade students at KIS. I work with students with all levels of capability to help them achieve academic and social success. In addition to this, I co-facilitate two key 8th grade student groups: the Teen Leadership Program and the Forgive and Forget Group. Both groups were developed to address bullying issues and to develop student leaders who can make a positive difference in the overall schooI climate here at KIS. It is a privilege to be part of all of these programs and to see these students grow and flourish over the course of their time at KIS. Parent input is always welcome and appreciated in creating an optimal atmosphere for building on our students' strengths and helping them to be the best they can be.
