School Social Worker/Behavioral Specialist

Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Brittany Allen 


About Me
Hi! My name is Brittany Allen and I am the School Social Worker/Behavioral Specialist for Amelia County Public Schools. I am originally from the Tidewater area of Virginia but have currently lived in Prince Edward County for the past 6 years. I graduated from Longwood University in 2012 with my Bachelor's Degree in Social Work and Women and Gender Studies minor. I graduated from Radford University in 2014 with my Master's of Social Work degree with a School Social Work concentration. After graduating Radford, I returned to Longwood to work in the Office of Residential and Commuter Life for 6 years where one of my roles was to assist students in crisis situations. This is my first year in the School Social Worker role here in Amelia and I am excited to be apart of the team!

Here is how I can assist you:

*Checking in with you if your student has missed 6 days or more of instruction (in person or virtually)

*Working with families to prevent referrals to court services

*Working with your student when behavioral concerns arise

*Assisting families that are identified as homeless

*Connecting families to useful resources within the community such as housing and food assistance, counseling services, etc.

When I'm not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our children, shopping, crafting and trying new restaurants. 

I have a passion for working with children and providing them with the resources and support that they need to reach their full potential. I am here to assist the students and families of Amelia County in any way that I can. Please feel free to reach out to me if I can assist.
