    Hello Killingly Families!
    Welcome to Goodyear Early Childhood Center! My name is Liz DeConno and I am the Preschool Social Worker. I am extremely passionate about Early Childhood Education and ADORE working with these kiddos! It is such an exciting age full of imagination and self-discovery. I love supporting families as their children begin their journey with the Killingly Public Schools. In the classroom I work collaboratively with your children’s educators to support social-emotional development and overall well-being. I assist with skills such as building friendships, creating healthy boundaries, making requests from peers and coping with “big feelings.” I also can assist families with referrals to community providers to meet their individual needs.
    About Me: I am originally from Providence, RI (and was raised by 2 Social Workers!). I attended Nichols College for my undergraduate studies. I am a graduate of Springfield College School of Social Work, where I completed my MSW and went on to become a Licensed Master’s Level Social Worker. Prior to completing my graduate studies, I worked with at-risk youth, young adults (working to acquire life skills and build independent lives) and ran a Credit Recovery Program for the Windham Department of Education. I also have a special passion for Women’s Substance Abuse Recovery – and focus on resilience in all aspects of my professional practice. I continue to work per diem as a Mental Health and Substance Abuse Therapist in Rhode Island.
    When I am not working I am a PROUD momma to three beautiful children. I stay busy with my 11-year-old daughter and 6-year-old twins, they participate in gymnastics and swim and we are always on the go! Through my own experience with motherhood I have learned the importance of patience, quality time and gratitude. My children have truly shaped me into the person I am today. I consider myself unmeasurably lucky to be able to connect, nurture, encourage, and support the children of Goodyear Early Childhood Center. Every day is a new adventure!
    Please never hesitate to be in touch –
