Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Sara Lovat. I am excited to return to the Farnsworth Aerospace Upper Campus for the 2019-20 school year. My favorite part of my job is working with students! Their energy, ideas, and passion teach me new things every day. During the 2019-20 school year I will be working with students in 8th grades and the Fed. 3 DCD program who receive special education services, students who receive support through Section 504 and students across grade levels needing support in the areas of social/emotional learning, mental health and trauma support and crisis intervention.
I have worked for St. Paul Public Schools for 15+ years. I am licensed by the Minnesota Board of Social Work as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and by the Minnesota Department of Education as a School Social Worker. I earned my masters degree in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I attended St. Paul Public Schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. I am proud that my children, in 5th and 8th grades, attend St. Paul Public Schools too.
Outside of work I am busy with my family and activities in our community. I enjoy reading, exploring the outdoors, running and swimming and the joys and challenges of parenting.
