Hello Panthers! My name is Haley Benson and I am excited to be joining the Altadeña team as our schools Social Worker! I graduated with my Bachelor of Social Work degree from Arizona State University in 2016, followed by my Master of Social Work degree in 2017.
I started my social work career as an intern at Royal Palm Middle School in the Washington Elementary School District in Phoenix. I’ve also worked as a Case Manager in the substance abuse treatment field and as a macro-level social worker analyzing policy for health and human service organizations at the State Capitol.
As the Social Worker at Altadeña, my goal is to ensure that all students have the skills and resources necessary to be successful socially and emotionally. Through 1:1 meetings with students, small groups, and collaboration with teachers and families, I will work to empower our students to reach their personal, social and academic goals.
Any student can request to meet with me or they can be referred by a teacher, administrator or parent. I encourage you to reach out if you have concerns regarding your child. If you would like for me to meet with your child, please do not hesitate to contact me.
