Welcome!

Hello,

Thank you for visiting my page.  I have the honor and privilege of being the Wellness Coordinator at Lincoln High School.  I started at Lincoln in the Spring of 2014 and I have worked in various schools in SFUSD since 2001.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.  I am here to help support our students' mental and emotional well being so that they can be successful at school.  I have a fantastic team who helps me with this mission!  We are also here to help parents, teachers, and staff with the challenges (and rewards) of raising and working with adolescents.  Please feel free to get in touch with us at the Wellness Center with any questions.

The purpose of this letter is to inform you, adults at home, that your teenager may be raising conversations about topics covered in a popular Netflix series called 13 Reasons Why. 

 

The show is based on a novel where a teenage girl dies by suicide.  A number of students have stated they have watched the series, and want to discuss the issues of bullying, suicide, and social media.  Wellness staff are engaging students and having discussions at school regarding these issues.  

 

CommonSense Media, which partners with SFUSD to educate students and parents about media, suggests that the film age range is 16 years and above.  Here is the link to a description of the show and reviews from parents if you are interested along with suggestion ideas for discussions at home.

 

Also, below is a link to an excellent resource from the National Association of School Psychologists for educators, parents, and students.
