Student Service Coordinator
Hi Tomahawk Families--
My name is Brianna Morrissey and I'm so excited to be part of Battle Ground Middle School. My official title is "Student Service Coordinator" which can be compared to a School Social Worker. I graduated with my MSW from IUPUI in 2021 and was hired on my Klondike Elementary as their SSC. I've been part of the Battle Ground Community since moving to West Lafayette(from Wisconsin) in 2017 as I worked in community mental health, and coached BGM 8th grade volleyball.
This year I'm looking forward to running groups throughout the school day to help meet the mental health needs of our community. I enjoy getting to know individual needs of students, and creating a collaborative environment for students to learn from not only myself, but other students as well. I enjoy being in classrooms as it gives me a good idea of the community being created, and allows me to focus on those areas of needs where our students are spending a large amount of time. I will also be meeting with students individually for mental health needs as well as social and behavioral needs.
Outside of school I love to adventure--hiking is one of my favorite self care activities. I also love watching sports/playing sports in my free time, but my all time favorite team is the Green Bay Packers. I will be welcoming a baby in October and look forward to all the family friendly activities in the community.
Please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have throughout the year!
