Hello, My name is Ms. Matlin and I am the School Social Worker for Saunders Middle School.  I have been a School Social Worker with Prince William County Schools for more than 15 years.  The School Social Worker's primary function is to provide a continuum of service delivery in the following areas: (1) direct services to students; (2) related services under IDEA; (3) services to school personnel; and (4) serving as a school-community liaison for staff, students, and parents. The school social worker contributes to the development of a healthy, safe, and caring environment by increasing the understanding of the role that family, mental health issues, community, and cultural factors have on a student’s academic performance.
