About Us

Ms. Beam, Mr. Salamone, and Ms. Hunter are the social workers at Gerald E. Talbot Community School. All three social workers bring years of combined and varied experience working in and outside of schools with children and families. The three social workers work directly with students individually, with whole classes, and in groups to provide them social-emotional support as needed. If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s social or emotional development, please contact any member of the Social Work Team.
