Hi and welcome to Jamie McGee Elementary School!
I have been the School Social Worker at Jamie McGee for 13 years. I love working with children and helping to believe in themselves and to help them realize their true potential. I use Social Thinking to help students learn how to be better social thinkers. Another curriculum I use is the ZONES of regulation so students can learn how to manage and express their emotions. I graduated fron National-Louis University with Bachelor degrees in Psychology and Human Services - Addictions. While working on my Master's Degree, I worked at Good Samaritan Hospital in the psychiatric hospital and at Community Family Services as a Wraparound Facilitator. I earned my Master's Degree from Aurora University in Social Work.
I love the beach, auto racing, kitties and reading. In fact, I have an extensive collection of 1400 books!! I wish I could say I have read most of them, but that is far from the truth. All of y books are organized by genre and alphatebetically by author! I have a passion for learning and sharing about holistic and natural lifestyle choices.
