I am currently a practicum student at Derby High School, with the school Social Worker, Vicky Hastings. I also work alongside the school counselors and therapists. As a practicum student, my roles and responsibilities include being a coordinator of Rachel's Challenge, and a member of PIT Crew. As a coordinator, I create and conduct meetings, lesson plans, calendars, information brochures, and various ppt. presentations. PIT Crew stands for Positive Intervention Team, and is made up of members of the DHS support staff. We as a team provide educational and emotional support for referred students. Also within my role as practicum student I am involved in case management, advocating for students, meeting with students individually, conducting social history interviews and having an interactive role in IEP, 504, and homebound meetings.
