Hi, my name is Gail and I am one of the social workers here at Como Senior.  This is my 26rth year as a social worker with Saint Paul Public Schools and I am very excited to be at Como Senior. One of my roles here at Como is to work with students who are struggling to make it to school each day.  Please stop by and see me if you need help strengthening your school attendance.  I am also here to support students and families needing to connect with mental health resources and practical resources.  I also facilitate a young women's empowerment group and I'd love to have you stop by and learn more about it if you are interested in joining.  

My direct phone line number is 651 744 6740.  My email address is, or just stop by my office which is room 1206.

If your student is absent please call 651 293 8800 and leave a message on the attendance line.  You can also leave a message on my direct line at 651 744 6740
