School Social Worker
Hi! My name is Mrs. Homer. I am excited to be the social worker at Watson Elementary School. Over the past 13 years, I have had the privilege of working with students and their families in both CCSD schools and charter schools. I love seeing the growth in students when they come to realize their value and potential! As a social worker, I actively seek out and provide vital resources to assist families in overcoming socioeconomic hurdles, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to thrive academically and personally. Additionally, my office is a safe space for open discussions on mental health, empowering students to express their feelings and seek help when needed. I am genuinely concerned for each student’s well-being and look forward to meeting and working with the families at Watson!
