Mrs. Sarah O'Neill
Hello! My name is Sarah O'Neill and I am the school social worker at Paddock Elementary! This is my third year here and I am looking forward to getting to know the new students and families attending Paddock this school year. At Paddock, I work with students in a variety of ways, including supporting our McKinney Vento students, evaluating and supporting special education students, and supporting the social and emotional development for all of Paddock students. If you have concerns about your Paddock student and need some additional support, please reach out to me. I look forward to working with you to help make this a successful year for your child!
Prior to working at Paddock, I worked as an elementary school therapist at two schools in Kentwood, Michigan. I love working with students to help them have a positive experience at school and enjoy supporting students and their families. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, my family, and my friends. My husband and I have two dogs and we love going for walks after school and hikes on the weekend.
If you are looking for resources, please view the Paddock Social Work Newsletters or community reource links below. If you are looking for additional resources, please feel free to reach out to me and I will try to connect you with the resources you are looking for.
You can view my Google classroom page with reources for students and families, classroom lessons, Social Emotional Learning resources (and so much more!) here: Mrs. O'Neill's Social Work Classroom.
