March 2nd-6th is School Social Work Week. In our role as advocates, it's important to advocate for ourselves as a valuable resource to our school and community. A big part of that is educating staff, administrators, and community members about what we do! It is also important to take time to celebrate each other and our accomplishments so that we have fuel to continue to do the work! Here are some resources to educate and celebrate!
