My job as a Resource Coordinator is to help insure every student has the tools they need to meet their fullest academic, social and emotional potential.  This means I work with students and families to make sure their needs are met.  Whether that means helping a family find affordable housing or assisting a student with obtaining a winter coat, I am here to support students and families.

My name is Emily Seiner and although my office is located in Gratz Brown Elementary, I travel between buildings each day and work with students and families from the Early Childhood Program, North Park Elementary, South Park Elementary and Gratz Brown Elementary.  I received my bachelor's degree in social work from University of Central Missouri and my master's degree in social work from University of Missouri Columbia.  I have been working in the social services field for over 10 years.  I have experience in juvenile justice, mental health, health care and education.  My passion is working with students to help ensure they have what they need to be healthy, happy, and successful in both school and life. 

My job is to link students and families with the school and the community.  I work closely with principals, counselors, teachers and parents/guardians to help support their students' academic and social success.  My duties cover a wide variety of needs. Below are just a few of the ways I may be able to assist:

  • Academic & Educational Support: This includes tutoring and mentoring resources as well as online apps and sites to help students with their academic work.
  • Bullying Resources: Information to learn the difference between being rude and being a bully, resources within the school and resources outside of the school for students & parents/guardians to learn more about how they can address concerning behaviors.
