Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Tamara Carlson and I am the School Social Worker at Wiggin Street Elementary. This is my second year in this role and I am so happy to be a part of the MVCSD and Wiggin Street family. I graduated from the Pennsylvania State University in 2001 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies and then obtained my Master of Social Work degree in 2004 from the University of Maryland at Baltimore. I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker and have worked in a variety of settings including schools, child welfare and foster care agencies, hospitals, and social services. My passion is working with children and families providing support and guidance to help every student reach their highest potential!
I moved to Ohio from Maryland in 2018 with my husband and two daughters, ages 13 and 9. My family and I, along with our dog, Ellie, have really enjoyed exploring the area and getting to know all the wonderful people here!
I look forward to seeing all the students and families this year. Please reach out to me with any questions, concerns, and/or support needed to help your child(ren) thrive this school year. It's going to be an awesome year!
