A Message from the President:
Wow. What a difference a year makes! Last year at this time, there were a lot of unknowns as we started the school year and I remember wondering how SSWAN would even be able to operate with all that we had on our plates. However, even in the midst of a pandemic, our association grew in membership and became more of an advocate for the school social work profession.
As our profession increases across the state and nation, it is an exciting time to be involved in local and national associations to learn about all the ways that School Social Workers continue to change the world. I had the opportunity to attend SSWAA’s Delegate Assembly this summer and am excited to share some of their updates at our first all-member meeting.
We learned a lot over the last year and have made some positive changes because of it. We plan to hold all but two of our meetings via zoom so we can reach more people and keep our meetings efficient for members throughout the state. We continue to learn, grow and adjust and are always open to new ideas and feedback for how we can continue to make your experience with SSWAN better. Please reach out to me with any ideas or feedback you have at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope you all have a smooth start to the school year and look forward to seeing you all in-person or virtually at our first meeting on September 9th.
Molly Schnabel, LCSW
