Ms. Berman

Hello! I am Ms. Berman, and I am the school social worker at Garfield School. This is my 3rd year as the school social worker at Garfield. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from Loyola University Chicago, and a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Psychology and a minor in Sociology and Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh.

School social workers partner with students, teachers, families, and administrators to help students achieve academic, behavioral, and social success at school. At Garfield, I facilitate the research based Second Step curriculum in all K-2nd  grade classrooms on a weekly basis. I go into preschool classrooms during centers once a week to support their social emotional learning through play. I am a member of the Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports Team (PBIS) at Garfield School. Additional services that I provide are, teacher consultation, crisis intervention, individual and group services, behavior management plans, community resource referrals for families, and much more!

I can be reached at or (708) 366-6945.
