My name is Kristal Short. I joined your team at Compass Elementary as the School Social Worker in January 2017. I look forward to getting the opportunity to work alongside the staff, children, and families here in the Compass community again this school year.
I am a native Kansan but now live north of Dearborn, MO with my husband Michael and 2 year old son Jeffrey.
I received my Bachelors of Science in Social Work at Kansas State University and then my Masters of Social Work at the University of Kansas. During my clinical practicum I worked for a year at Barry School. My background is working in Child Welfare and in Mental Health fields.
Some of my hobbies include hanging out and making memories with my family, walking our dogs, playing/coaching volleyball and softball and cheering on the cats at K-State football games!
I also love partnering with children and their families to help each individual be successful in school and in all endeavors. Please don't hesitate reach out to me if you have any questions or needs.
Kristal Short, LCSW
