Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jane Butterfoss
My name is Jane Butterfoss and I am one of the school social workers at Chelsea Heights. Chelsea Heights has been my home school for the past 5 years, and I have worked in St. Paul for 18 years total. I love Chelsea Heights and school social work! Prior to coming to the schools, I worked with teen parents at the Wilder Foundation; when my own children became teenagers I changed directions to work with elementary students. I have a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Pennsylvania. I am licensed by the Minnesota Board of Social Work as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and by the Department of Education as a School Social Worker.
I live in St. Paul and have three children who are all St. Paul public school graduates; they live on the east and west coasts now, so my husband and I enjoy visiting them. We have a dog who is also my "personal trainer;" we spend a lot of time walking:) I like to ride my bike around the lakes, and to go to the beach when I have the chance. I like to read, and my favorite food group is chocolate:)
I love the feeling of community at Chelsea! I love sharing in the good times and coming together in the tough times. I believe we are all here to help our students be the very best they can be.
