Social Worker's Department

Larry became a part of our school community in 2018 as the School Social Worker.  From 1999 to 2018, he managed youth programs for Cypress Hills LDC at IS 171, Highland Park Community School, the former Beacon program at IS 302, and PS 7.  Larry is pursuing his Doctorate in Social Work at Capella University School of Public Service and Leadership and holds an MSW from Simmons University School of Social Work.  As a previous Franklin K. Lane High School student returning to his roots, he is excited to work in such an inclusive school community.  He collaborates with community organizations to provide resources and support for students and families in need.  His extensive experience and expertise in social work, program management, and partnership development make him a valuable asset to the school community.  He is dedicated to creating a safe and supportive environment for all students and nurturing scholars personal and academic growth.  With a focus on care centered around the individual's needs and preferences, he aims to positively impact the well-being and success of every scholar at our school.
