Vanessa is our School Social Worker. To support students she checks in with them during their class time on Zoom in breakout rooms, through texts and phone calls,
as well as in person since we have been on campus. She always tries to make sure the students feel comfortable to talk to her about whatever is on their mind, be it
school-related or not, so she can best support their social-emotional needs and hopefully get them more engaged in their academics as a result of that connection.

“I enjoy getting to know the students and building positive relationships with them! Each student I have been able to talk to has their own story to tell, and I love hearing what they have to say..”

One of our students recently told Ms. Casanova: “I’m happy there is someone at school I can talk to if I need to.”
