Hello Arbury Hills All Stars!

I am Mrs. Johnston and I am the school social worker for Arbury Hills School. This is my fifth year at Arbury Hills and sixth year as a school social worker.

As a school social worker I will help the students understand themselves and others, improve relationships, develop decision making skills and make sure they reach their academic and personal potential. I will often see the students in individual or group sessions on topics such as developing friendships, social skills, coping skills, problem solving, etc.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding social, emotional or behavior issues feel free to contact me.
