Mrs. Susin is a school social worker for the Franklin Lakes District. She graduated with her Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Social Work and has earned her School Social Work certification. She is extremely passionate about her work, and enjoys working as a team with Teachers, Parents and the Child Study Team to help each child achieve the best education possible. 

The child study team is committed to the design and implementation of educational programs that help students succeed in the classroom setting. Our philosophy as a multi-disciplinary team is to think of the “whole” child; that is the child’s functioning in academic, behavioral and social domains. In our work, it is critical that the education of students yield meaningful results. With this said, the CST is dedicated to the collaboration process with general and special education teachers, specialists, consultants and parents to organize support systems that help students succeed in the classroom. Students are treated as an “individual” with unique learning needs. It is our responsibility as a CST to identify the student’s strengths that promote learning, and challenges that compromise potential academic growth. We succeed in our endeavors because of the highly qualified teachers in the district, and the strong parental support of our programs.
