As a School Social Worker my role includes providing students with individual and group counseling (with the consent of a parent/guardian). I also provide crisis intervention, develop behavior modification plans, consult with parents, teachers, doctors, and other professionals, administer and score appropriate protocols for children when necessary (if attention, behavior, depression or anxiety are a concern) and provide resource information to families as needed. I believe students, parents and staff need to work together as a team in order to help each student reach their fullest potential.
I am at Gardner Elementary School (939-3060 ext 333) on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and the Jr. High (939-3457 ext 514) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. My email address is JFauss@wcusd5.net. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to assisting you in any way I can.
