The School Social Work Association of WELCOME TEACHER GROUPS school social workers and promotes the profession of school social work to enhance the social and emotional growth and academic outcomes of all students.
Our vision is that school social work is a valued, integral part of the education of all children, connecting schools, families and communities.
The best teachers with the biggest teaching "bag of tricks", recognize that numerous factors interfere with their ability to reach many of their students. Children today are increasingly victims of many social forces that negatively affect their role as students.
We need to get in there and do the work. We may do our work in a classroom, at a table, under a table, outside of a home on the front porch or through a screened door.
