Degrees and Certifications:
Mr. Paul Black
I am a School Social Worker at Lakewood Creek and have been in the education field since getting my Master’s degree in 2006. School Social Workers assist students with improving social and problem solving skills, teaching emotional regulation strategies, and being a resource to parents and teachers with social emotional needs. Right after finishing school, I worked in Seattle as an elementary mental health therapist for several years. I moved back to Illinois and have worked at both the elementary and middle school levels. I enjoy hanging out and relaxing with friends and family, binge watching some T.V. shows every now and then, and Calvin and Hobbes.
