• The social workers and psychologist at the preschool perform a variety of roles in order to help support our students, their families and our staff.

    Our psychologist, Leigh Miller, is an evaluator on our Special Education Assessment team for children ages 0-5, provides consultation support to all of our Preschool Staff and community based services.

    Our social workers, Amanda Chrzasz-Reedy and Bianka von Kulajta, are also evaluators on our Special Education Assessment Team for children ages 0-5, provide consultation support to all of our Preschool Staff and community-based services, and are available to consult with our Preschool Families to help link them to community resources.

    As a school social worker, during the Covid-19 outbreak, social workers can help families identify resources in the community to help them with financial struggles, concerns about their child’s behaviors at home, mental health supports, and finding recreational sources to help their child strengthen / build their social experiences. 

    While Ann Arbor Public Schools are closed,  Bianka will be available during “Online Office Hours.”  This means that on Mondays and Wednesdays, you can reach Bianka via her email vonkulajta@aaps.k12.mi.us between the hours of 11am – 1pm.  If you need to reach a preschool school social worker on Tuesdays or Thursdays, you can contact Amanda Chrzasz-Reedy at chrzaszreedya@aaps.k12.mi.us.  Her office hours via email are also 10am – 12pm on those days.
