Mallory Knipe has been working in her position as the school district social worker for the past four years. Mallory was the first social worker to be hired by the district for this position. Mallory is resigning from the school district at the end of this school year to pursue a full time position as a clinical instructor teaching in UW- Eau Claire’s Bachelor of Social Work program.
Making this decision was difficult for Mallory, as working for this school district has been such a positive experience and one for which she is very grateful. Mallory has enjoyed working with all of her colleagues within the district and has gained much valuable experience here.
