Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Andrea Jagusch and I am one of the Special Education School Social Workers here at Johnson Senior High School. I am also Johnson's Trauma Informed Coach, a resource available to staff, students, and students' families. I have been a Licensed Social Worker since 2009, primarily working with children, ages 5-18. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from Augsburg College. I began working for St. Paul Public Schools in 2011. I also am a medical social worker part-time and work with people of all ages in the hospital setting.
Here at Johnson High School I work with students who receive special education and/or students who do not receive specialized services, but need additional support pertaining to social skills and/or mental health. I typically meet with students individually, and at times in small groups, for issues that affect their school performance.
When I'm not working I love to spend time with my family and friends, gardening/yard work, and traveling!
