Welcome Mustangs and Mustang Parents!!!
Who am I?
My name is Mrs. Perez and I am your school Social Worker. I take to heart the following African proverb..."It takes a village to raise a child." With this in mind, I am very excited to be returning to the Loma Park family for my second school year!
What does a school Social Worker do?
I am part of a guidance program team that provides small group/individual counseling as well as ongoing support and education to you and/or your child. I am your liaison between school, home and the community.
It's important to understand that there is a relationship between how we feel and how these feelings are going to affect our decisions, good or not so good, we make throughout the present day and future. Through talking, learning and sharing these feelings, we can learn to work with our strengths so that we can ensure an academic and social successful life for you and your child.
Do you need to go to college to be a Social Worker?
Yes!!! Yes!!! Yes!! I graduated with my Bachelor's and Master's of Social Work from Our Lady of the Lake University. I also had to study hard to pass my Licensure test. Hard work pays off because I received my License to practice social work from the TX board of Social Worker Examiners!
