Mrs. Amy Carrera
A little bit about me, I am starting my 18th year as a School Social Worker, 7 years so far in District 16 and prior I worked for 10 years in neighboring Carol Stream School District. I love being a School Social Worker, it means so much that you, our students and our families entrust and allow me to be a part of your lives. Helping students to be all that they can be, by assisting them in developing the confidence and life skills to be confident in their social and academic pursuits gives me much joy.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family; my husband and daughter who is in 8th grade this year, and our Westie Scout who is an adorable, mischevious, stubborn and sometimes grumpy dog, but we love him tons! I love traveling and seeing new places as a family, love playing games with friends and family and I really enjoy a good relaxing movie night as well. Looking forward to working with and meeting all of you, feel free to reach out if I can help you in any way.
