Shirley Santiago, Social Worker Intern

Hello, my name is Shirley Santiago, I am a social worker and I hope to work at a school as a school social worker in the future. I am most looking forward to meeting all of the students and their families and watching them grow throughout the year! A few things I love to do are roller-skating, dancing, hiking, and spending the day at the beach. I am excited to be part of A Step Beyond.
