I am so excited to be back and filling in again for Mrs. Karapanos for the 2015-2016 school year! I am originally from Buffalo Grove but have spent several years in Central Illinois before moving back to the Chicago area. I received my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Psychology and my Master's Degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in School Social Work. Prior to working at Indian Grove, I was the School Social Worker at Edison Elementary School in Danville, Illinois. 

School Social work services are provided to students when social, emotional, behavioral or academic difficulties interfere with daily school functioning. In addition, the social worker is available to parents and teachers as a consultant and resource for various topics including normal development, behavioral difficulties, peer issues, school adjustment and self esteem.

School social work services can either be individual, group or in the classroom. Students can receive individual sessions for specific issues which impact their daily functioning. The group setting gives students the opportunity to share with other students with similar concerns. Classroom sessions are used most often as an integral portion of our character education curriculum.

If you feel that your child is in need of social work services, please feel free to contact me at 224-612-7535 or jwolff@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 2015-16 school year, I will be working with the following students:
Early Childhood, Mrs. Eisenhuth's class (K), Mrs. Larson's class (K), 1st grade, and 4th grade
Mrs. Levy will be working with students from K- Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Russo, and Ms. Klawans' classrooms, 2nd grade, 3rd grade and 5th grade. She can be contacted at slevy@rtsd26.org or 224-612-7541.
