Welcome community members! I'm Brian O'Connor, and I have been the Bilingual School Social Worker at West Gate Elementary since 2003. I once again look forward to serving your children, you and the community in which they live. The following description of school social work services comes directly from the Prince William County Schools Student Services webpage:
"School Social Work Services are designed to promote educationally, psychologically and socially healthy school environments to optimize student learning. The Social Worker's primary functions are to provide direct intervention in the school setting and to link students and families with services outside the school."
What that really means is that I will do all that I can to help you and your children have a positive school year. I typically am at West Gate on Wednesdays and Fridays. Through this webpage and direct contact, I hope to help community members access community resources and information more easily.
