Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Ann Volpentesta
I joined the Old Post Family in 2008 as a school social worker and have been lucky enough to call this place home ever since. I graduated from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Criminology. Prior to becoming a school social worker, my career was spent in adult mental health in residential, hospital and day program settings. In 2008, I graduated from Aurora University with a Master’s in Social Work with school specialization. My passion is helping students learn and utilize the skills required to be happy, confident, productive community members!
At Old Post, I have the opportunity to work with ALL students. In addition to providing individual or group counseling services, social workers assist with school wide behavioral expectations (PBIS), safety awareness, classroom social emotional lessons, AVID Elementary and Character Counts. I look forward to getting to know all Old Post students and families. It is going to be a great year!
