Hello! My name is Stephanie Hosch and I am a Licensed Social Worker and have been in the field for a little over 2 years. Prior to joining the district as a Social Worker, I was working at Four Oaks PMIC (psychiatric medical institute for children) as an individual and family therapist. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2015 with my Bachelor of Social Work degree (BSW). I then graduated in 2017 with my Master of Social Work degree with a concentration of Trauma- Informed Care. I have always had an interest in working with children and families, especially in the school community. My therapeutic focus and specialization in the field is Trauma-Informed. I use this approach to look beyond the child’s behavior and mental health to the deeper trauma and the role this may be playing in the child or families’ lives.
Stephanie’s duties will include:
- Individual meetings with students
- Connecting families with community resources
- Support for school counseling program
