CJ Dziuban, Social Worker, Homeless Liaison, LCSW

Hello and welcome! My name is CJ Dziuban, and I am the School Social Worker for Coal City Intermediate School. As a School Social Worker, I am responsible for the identification, assessment, and treatment of social/emotional concerns that may impact a child's education and/or daily life.
 
School Social Workers identify factors that can make school a more successful experience for students.
School social workers help STUDENTS:
  • Achieve maximum benefit from their educational opportunities
  • Understand themselves and others
  • Cope with stress
  • Develop decision making skills

School social workers help PARENTS:
  • Participate effectively in their children's education
  • Understand and meet their children's social and emotional needs
  • Understand programs available to students with special needs
  • Utilize school and community resources effectively

School social workers help SCHOOLS:
  • Understand factors (cultural, societal, economic, familial, health, etc.) that affect students
  • Abilities to make maximum use of their school experience
  • Utilize their resources in meeting the educational, social, and emotional needs of students
  • Promote a safe school environment

School Social Workers help COMMUNITIES:
  • Understand school policies, programs, and practice
  • Minimize those environmental factors which inhibit learning
  • Develop resources to adequately meet the needs of students and families
 
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my wife and son. Our favorite family activities right now are following around our son, trying to keep him occupied, and watching all of the cool new things he learns each day! When I am not with the family I enjoy spending time outdoors, watching sports, hunting, and fishing.
