Anna SchneiderA little bit about me: I love what I do and love this school! I laugh a lot and have a particular giggle. I enjoy spending time outdoors on my hobby farm. I love spending time with family and friends playing games and enjoying one another’s company. I like to try new things and am always looking for a new adventure!

A little about me: ¡Saludos! I am a Bilingual School Social Worker here at N.E.W. School of Innovation and love working with this team! It is a privilege being able to return to the school district I graduated from and give back to my community in my role.

I was born and raised in Green Bay, Wisconsin and am a first generation graduate of immigrant parents. My studies took place at UWGB, where I earned my bachelor's degree by double majoring in Social Work and Spanish, along with a double minor in Human Development and Women & Gender Studies in 2020. I also completed my master’s degree at UWGB in Social Work, with an emphasis in both School and Clinical Social Work in 2021. 

What I enjoy most about my role is having the opportunity to connect and build relationships with my students and families. I strive to continuously learn about others’ culture and values to best support and understand how to work with the diverse population that is served in our world today. 

As a School Social Worker, I provide a bridge between the home, school, and community in providing direct/indirect services to students, families, and school personnel to promote and support students’ academic and social success. Being a trained mental health professional, I am able to assist with mental health concerns and provide resources that are school and/or community based depending on an individual’s needs. I ensure my delivery of support is culturally responsive to meet the diverse needs of our school and empower opportunities for change when applicable.

I look forward to working with anyone in my capacity as one of the School Social Workers at N.E.W.! Below, I have provided my contact information if one would like to get in contact with me:

A little about me: Hola, I am your School Counselor here at N.E.W School of Innovation. I was born and raised in Yauco, Puerto Rico. In 2003, I completed my bachelor degree in Psychosocial Human Services with a minor in Dysfunctional Families, Child Abuse and Domestic Violence. After my graduation, I moved to Wisconsin with my husband and our three kids. I worked in CESA 7 Head Start for about 12 years as a Family Advocate. This experience made me realize that working in the education field is my purpose, and passion. In 2015, I decided to go back to school to pursue a Counseling degree with an Emphasis in School Counseling. 

A big part of my job as a School Counselor is to help students plan for their future and/or after high school. This process is called Academic and Career Planning (ACP). Below you will find  information about resources to help you plan for your future.
