Social Worker

Hello! I am Ms. Villiers and I am the School Social Worker here at Yale Elementary. This will be my 3rd year as part of both the APS and the Yale Elementary community! Before coming to Yale, I spent the previous 5 years working with adults, kids, and families in the community mental health setting. When I’m not at school, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my 2 Huskies, playing volleyball, rock climbing, and travelling.

This year, I’m excited to be teaching mindfulness and different coping strategies to all students at Yale, as well as continuing to provide small social-emotional groups! During social-emotional groups this year, students can look forward to learning about emotions, behaviors, and identifying ways they can help themselves and others feel better. Together, we will learn by having fun, stepping outside our comfort zones, character role playing, engaging with online resources, and much, much, more! I am very excited to connect with all of you and learn together during the 2020 -2021 school year!
