My name is Tamar Friedman and I am the social worker at Currier Elementary School. I am excited to start my third year at Currier! I have been a social worker for the past 15 years. I have worked with children in hospitals, outpatient mental health clinics as well as in schools. Working with children and families is a passion of mine! I
meet with students both individually and in small groups, focusing on social
skills, self-regulation and appropriate school behavior. I also support children and families coping with a wide range of emotional and family issues.
If you have any concerns about your child or need any referrals to resources (e.g. housing, clothing, food) or counseling services, please do not hesitate to contact me at Currier at tel. 630-293-6600 ext. 244.
