Ms. Chatelah Brown
The Decatur Maker Space is building desks for students – nothing fancy (see photo below) but very functional. Here is a link to the article. https://decaturmakers.org/building-free-desks-youth/
I am Ms. Brown, the School Social Worker at Phoenix Academy. This school year is my fifth year as a Social Worker with Atlanta Public Schools! Amazing how fast time goes when you are having fun! I am from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am a graduate of University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. I have a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. I am currently pursuing my Doctoral degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University.
Over the past 20 years as a Social Worker, I have had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings and gained experience from all of them. It is part of my nature to care, empower, and motivate others, helping to make their lives better and happier. I continue to enjoy working with students in developing healthy relationships that allow them to be successful in the classroom.
As the School Social Worker, I collaborate with community agencies on behalf of students and their families in building healthy connections to resources available within their community and beyond, when needed. My goal is to make sure students and their families have access to resources that will benefit them in school and in society. I am here as a resource, so please, contact me with any questions or concerns.
