Name: Samilia Ghartey-SamSchool: HSClass / 9-12
Welcome! My name is Samilia Ghartey-Sam. I am a school social worker in the School Based Youth Services Department at the High School. I assist students by addressing their emotional, interpersonal, academic, and familial issues. The service is provided through the following modalities - individual, group, family therapy and crisis intervention to students and their families. I am also co-advisor of the African American Culture Club. That role gives me the opportunity to engage students in issues that affect them as individuals, a community, a state, and a nation. The goal of discussions and activities is to foster a better understanding of their varying perspectives and find commonalities and things that unite them. They also learn to come up with solutions for problems that they are confronted with.
UNITED WE PROGRESS!
