Hi my name is Karol Espejo, and I am very excited to be joining Jefferson Elementary School. I am a licensed social worker with a strong background working with children, adolescents, and families. I received my BS degree in PublichHealth from the University of Maryland, College Park and my Master’s of Social Work from the Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
I recently relocated from Maryland, where I worked as a mental health therapist in an elementary school. I also have several years of experience providing outpatient mental health services to children and families. My goal is to support your child in having a positive social-emotional and academic school year. I work collaboratively with parents, teachers, and students to address any issues that might surface through the year and in building a caring school community.
A few things about me:
- I love spending time with my family
- I have a pug
- I’m originally from Peru
- I love to travel and try new cuisines
- I enjoy reading and baking in my free time
