Mr. Matthew Ortiz

Social Worker

Hello! I am the Social Worker here at ET Wrenn Middle School. Students face many challenges that prevent them from being successful at school. As a result, they may have difficulty dealing with peers and adults, have truancy issues, and poor grades. In response to this, I work with students and families to give them the tools they need to be successful, not only at school, but in their personal lives. Various services I provide are:

  • Individual counseling
  • Small group counseling
  • Referrals to community agencies for needed services and resources
  • Mediation
  • Student advocacy
  • Crisis Intervention/Response
  • Collaboration with teachers and administration

If you have any questions or concerns, please come see me.

We are so happy that you have decided to send your children to Wrenn!
