Mrs. Loren White
Hello! My name is Loren White and I am the School Social Worker and Team Coordinator for the Orchard Valley and Chestnut Ridge Middle Schools.
I graduated from George Washington University with a business degree in marketing. I spend many years working in the human resources field employing people in and around the D.C. area. I loved this field so much that I decided go back to school for a graduate degree in social work. I graduated from Temple University in my early 30's. My experiences after graduation have included working for the Family Crisis Intervention Unit and Hampton Behavioral Health. In 2000, I started working on the Child Study Team for the Washington Township School District.
Outside of work, I enjoy growing flowers and gardening. I also enjoy going to the shore, traveling to new/different places, making jewelry, and spending time with my family.
As a Child Study Team member, my responsibilities include working with children and families in order to make the educational experience a successful one. This process encompasses working with children throughout the school day, meeting with families to conduct a social history interview, working amongst teachers, guidance counselors and administrators in the best interest of the child, and holding meetings such as new referral meetings, parent/teacher conferences, and eligibility and IEP meetings.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions about the referral process or special education, or if want more information about resources. I will return your call or email within a 48 hour period.
I look forward to a successful school year!
