Ms. Alyssia Hence

Greetings! My name is Alyssia Hence and I am excited to join Carpenter Elementary School as the School Social Worker this school year! I am entering my fourth year as a School Social Worker and am excited to continue to learn and grow as a School Social Worker at Carpenter. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Social Work Degree at Eastern Michigan University in 2018. I then earned a Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2019. My interest in supporting students began in high school when I had the opportunity to be supported by a caring, consistent, and non-judgemental Social Worker while attending high school in Detroit, MI. From then on, I knew I wanted to offer students the same level of support I had received. As I feel I am a testament of the quote, “Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.”-Josh Shipp
