Elisa Sanchez-Tarman

Hello Owen High School Students and Families!  Hola estudiantes y familias de Owen High School!
I hope everyone is having a great school year!  I am the social worker for both Owen High School and Owen Middle School.  I work closely with the counselors, teachers and administrators in order to best support the students and families of OHS.  I can assist with the acquisition of community resources, peer issues, mental health referrals, community-based supports, crisis response, among many other things.  If you have a question and are not certain of who to ask, please do not hesitate to contact me - I will be happy to help and/or connect you with the appropriate people.   I am extremely happy to be in my 6th year at Owen High because I thoroughly enjoy working with the students, families and wonderful Owen Community.
I moved to Asheville about six years ago from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and love this area of the country.  I earned my Bachelor's Degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and my Master's of Social Work (MSW) from Loyola University Chicago. I am currently finishing the required hours to earn my LCSW (social worker clinical licensure) which I will complete by June of this year.

Please - if there's anything you're uncertain about and feel you would like help with, for either your student or family, please let me know.  I look forward to meeting all of you!
