Social Worker

My name is Heather Schuller and I am the Gerner early childhood social worker.  I am approaching my 22nd year of practicing social work and love every aspect of my profession and career. 

I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Human Services from Park University in 2002. In 2009, I graduated with my graduate degree from KU in social work.   I am passionate about family advocacy and believe that everyone child despite disability can learn and grow.  I use a strengths-based approach in all situations and always strive to provide data-driven services across all areas of early childhood.  In my free time, I love to quilt, go on nature hikes and spend time with my family and friends.  I have two children ages 13 and 9 and a house full of furry pets.  We are also huge Chiefs fans and love to attend sporting events. 

For more information on resources, see the Student and Family Support page on the district website.
