Hello Families! 

I am so excited to be here and I am looking forward to a great school year. My name is Kora Burrell and I am the new School Social Worker assigned to North Preschool. I am a licensed Social Worker in the state of Colorado, with experience working with children of all ages and their families. I have lived in Colorado since 2015, I have two kiddos of my own, and three pet cats. I enjoy going on walks, gardening, and making art. I will be working with the children and teachers here at North Preschool to support Social Emotional Learning in the classroom through fun activities which will focus on recognizing and regulating emotions, conflict resolution skills, coping skills, and more. I will also be supporting teachers in collaborative planning to ensure every child’s unique needs are identified and met in their educational setting.  Parents and families, please feel free to contact me if you are having challenges finding and accessing resources, needing any tips or tricks relating to parenting, or for any questions you may have regarding my role.  I can be reached at burrellkora@wsd3.org or call or text my work cell at 719-290-7024, all conversations are confidential aside from my mandatory reporting duties.
