Stander, Lisa - Social Worker

Greetings Hurricane families!  Lisa Stander here, your school social worker at Cane Creek Middle School.  I have worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in WNC since 2002 after graduating from Appalachian State University with a Bachelors in Social Work in 1996 and from the University of South Carolina with a Masters in Social Work in 1999.  I am excited to begin my 3rd year as a school social worker for Buncombe County Schools for the 2020-2021 school year.  My role in the school is to help remove barriers that interfere with student success and connect the home, school, and community.  I collaborate closely with students, teachers, and guardians to address issues around attendance, behavioral health concerns, social emotional concerns, resources needs, etc, and link families to community resources and providers.  Feel free to call, text, or email if you would like to connect with me directly about your CCMS student and/or family.
