My name is Peter Shanedling, and I am excited to be the new Social Worker at Chelsea Heights! I have been working in the St. Paul Schools as a School Social Worker for 20 years. Before graduating with a masters of Social Work Program from the College of St. Catherine, I was a Camp and Youth Director for nine years.
When I am not at school, I like to spend time with my family, including my wife, 14 year old son, dog Dollie. When I am not at work I love playing soccer, birdwatching, gardening, and cooking.
As a School Social Worker I enjoy learning about and celebrate student's strengths and focusing on problem solving and socile, emotional and behavior skill development.
I am available to support all Chelsea Heights students and families, including students who receive Social Work services through Special Education. I can help families locate needed community services, including mental health services, housing services, food, and financial services.
