Hello My N
ame Is...

Mrs. Levy
School Social Worker

This begins my 28th year in District 26 as a School Social Worker. I began at RTMS and after six years at the middle school, I transferred to Indian Grove.  I received my Masters on Social Work from Jane Addams College of Social Work at University of Illinois at Chicago and worked in the Waukegan Public Schools prior to coming to District 26.  Indian Grove is a great place to learn and work!

School social work services are provided to students when social, emotional, behavioral or academic difficulties interfere with daily school functioning.  I am also available for parents to consult and be a resource for various topics including normal development, behavioral difficulties, peer issues, school adjustment anxiety issues and self-esteem concerns.  Services may be provided in a variety of settings to best meet the needs of the student.  

If you feel that your child is in need of social work services, please feel free to contact me at 224-612-7541 or slevy@rtsd26.org.  You can also contact your child's teacher to talk about your concerns and assess if a social work referral is necessary.  

During the 2014-15 school year, I will be working with the following students:
K-  Mrs. Larson and Ms. Klawans classroom, 2nd grade, 4th grade and 5th grade.  
Mrs. Wolff will be working with students from Mrs. Eisenhuth's room, 1st grade and 3rd grade.  She can be contacted at jwolff@rtsd26.org or 224-612-7535.

To find out information about the Second Step program, please visit www.cfchildren.org and www.secondstep.org.  I also have an informational document available below.
