Hello! My name is Mrs. LaMotte and I am excited to be the social worker for Tyler School!
What social work can do: As a school social worker, one of my responsibilities is to provide Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). SEL helps students demonstrate empathy for others, manage their emotions, develop resiliency and cope with life challenges. SEL promotes positive mental health, increases connectedness to school and leads to improved academic outcomes.
As a school social worker, I will provide trauma-informed services, crisis intervention and counseling to both general and special education students. However, I'm here for everyone's benefit.
Please feel free to contact me at (815) 485-2398 extension 6718.
