Miss Johnson's Social Emotional Online Library
As a school social workers in our district, I am an advocate who provide a variety of therapeutic and professional services to support students in identifying and achieving academic and social emotional goals. Social workers support students in their educational processes by providing students with counseling and crisis intervention, supporting parent and family involvement, assisting and planning school based interventions with educators, and assessing the need for special services.
Yearly, I continue to help students with emotion regulation, problem solving, developing social skills, finding their strengths, exploring their growth mindset, learning new strategies, and more! To help reinforce skills at home and in the classroom, I have created this guide as a resource library. Please view the pages at the top to learn more about social-emotional resources, verbiage, books, and more!
As we move to eLearning, various resources will be uploaded here to help students continue practice skills at home. To find information, please click the settings button (three lines in the top left corner) to access the different pages.
If you are a member of our district community and you need assistance and/or support, please contact me via EMAIL. I would be happy to connect you with local agencies and resources to support your family.
Evanston/Skokie District 65 understands that COVID-19 can cause worry and concern for your student at home. Younger students may find this disruption in their daily lives to feel scary and wonder if things will return to normal again. For those older students, they may be expressing sadness that they are losing connection with friends, social events and other predictable routines. All educators and staff are working hard to keep connections and learning going, and you can help at home by providing reassurance that children their age can take steps to remain safe and healthy going forward.
