Welcome to my website!

Katie Bonanno, MSW 
(828) 775-2608
I have been a School Social Worker for 4 years in Buncombe County Schools. Prior to that, I worked for Buncombe DSS as an investigative, assessment, and treatment social worker. I am a proud Tar Heel and attended UNC-Chapel Hill for both my Bachelor's Degree (2002) and Master's of Social Work (2010). 
School Social Workers serve as the link between students' families and the school. I collaborate with parents, guardians, teachers and other school officials to ensure that students reach their academic and personal potential to be globally productive citizens in the twenty-first century. Supportive services are provided to students to motivate them to be their best when they are faced with barriers such as: absenteeism, abuse/neglect, pregnancy, addictions, poverty, homelessness, etc. Each situation is assessed and individual plans are developed with the student/family.
If your family is experiencing any issue that you feel is impacting your child's ability to do his or her best in school, please call or visit me. I will be happy to listen and help in any way I can.
