My name is Danielle Nichols and I am the Special Education Social Worker for the Fort Leavenworth School District. This is my 3rd year in the district and I am so excited to meet you and your students. In the role of school social worker, I provide services to students and their families related to social, emotional and life adjustments in order to maximize educational achievement. In collaboration with parents, teachers, administrators, and community resource agencies, I will work to implement strategies that promote a student’s positive school adjustment. I am a service provider for special education students who are requiring direct support for social or emotional needs. I am also available to assist families in connecting to community or military resources.
I received a BA in Psychology from the University of Saint Mary and my MSW from Washington University in Saint Louis. I have worked in the fields of foster care, early intervention and for the Fort Leavenworth EFMP. I enjoy my role in the school and the many different ways I get to experience growth and success with the students.
