School Social Worker

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am excited to welcome you to my school website. My role as a School Social Worker is that of a trained professional with a degree in social work who provide services related to a person's social, emotional and life adjustment to school and/or society. School Social Workers are the link between the home, school and community in providing direct as well as indirect services to students, families and school personnel to promote and support students' academic and social success. 

My role includes:

Individual/group counseling

Participation in Planning and Placement Team Meetings (PPT) and Section 504 meetings 

Assisting parents in accessing community resources (insurance/counseling, etc.)

Improving school attendance

Assist with mental health concerns, behavioral concerns, positive behavioral support, academic and classroom support

Consultation with teachers, parents and administrators.

Besides my work life, I am also a mom to my son Cameron who was born in 2010. If I am not exhausted from chasing him around, I enjoy photography and traveling. I graduated Eastern Connecticut State University with my Bachelor's Degree in Social Worker in 1999 and The University Of Connecticut with my Master's Degree in Social Work in 2003. I started working for New Milford Public Schools in 2006 at Sarah Noble Intermediate School. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. My number is 860-210-4020 ext. 320.

Sincerely,

Alicia Getz MSW
