Hello!! My name is Laura Montiel and this is my 5th year at the North Palos School District 117. I come from Oak Ridge Elementary School and in January of 2020, I transitioned into Conrady Junior High. My primary role as a school social worker at Conrady is to work with all students implementing school-wide interventions and initiatives.
I am a graduate of the Jane Addams College of Social Work at UIC. I also, recently obtained the School Mental Health Advanced Practice Certificate, from Loyola University. I believe in long-life learning and the Loyola program brought me this opportunity to continue to enhance my education to better serve our students.
I became a school social worker because I strongly believe that school is an important step to bring a positive change to the lives and futures of our children.
