Why Aurora?


"This is my 4th year in the district and our department is what keeps me going. It's wonderful to work with a group of people who truly care about the well-being of our students and are dedicated to their best interests. We are a forward-thinking group of people open to positive change and innovation. The nature of our profession is to support those around us, and everyone I've met does this with grace and humor. "  - Lesley Rhodes, Social Worker

"We have a fantastically supportive director who problem solves with us when we need it and who fights for us at the district and state level. I do not leave the district because I believe that I would not get the support and care anywhere else. I love APS!" - Adria Young, LCSW, Social Worker

"I love that in APS I get to really work directly with students on mental health issues. The kids and families need me and the support I provide. I feel like I can be successful here and I feel supported and appreciated.  The Behavior Health team has provided the most useful professional development I have ever had in my career as a school social worker." - Christiane Laracuente, LCSW, Social Worker
