Mrs. Ellen McCrea

My name is Ellen McCrea.  I have been the School Social Worker for Gateway School for six years and have worked for Caldwell County Schools for seven years. Prior to that I provided services to Newton-Conover, Hickory City and Catawba County Schools.  I grew up in Pennsylvania but have lived in North Carolina for the past twenty-three years.  As the school social worker, I assist students and families access needed resources so that these  students can achieve their potential.  I am also the social worker for Dudley Shoals Elementary School.  My schedule is below.
