My name is Kate Schleyer and I am your school social worker at Bower Elementary School.  I have worked at Bower since 2000.   I am also the coordinator for Girls on the Run at Bower School.  My room is number 113 across from the LLC, feel free to stop by anytime.  I can also be reached at 393-9413 ext. 4238 or at


I received my Bachelor in Social Work at Western Illinois University, my Master in Social Work at the Jane Addams School of Social Work at UIC and completed Loyola University's Certificate of Advanced School Based Mental Health Practice in Schools program.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

I work with all students and families at Bower.  I provide direct services to students and their families including casework, group counseling, individual counseling, classroom presentations as well as providing crisis intervention, consultation and making referrals to community agencies.  I am part of the assessment process for special education students as well as often providing direct and indirect services to those students.  I also consult with teachers and administrators and frequently participate on teams within the schools.
As you can see in my job, I wear many hats but my main responsibility is to support students’ emotional and social development.  
Please feel free contact me if you or your child need any support, services or have questions.
