Co-Author of The Social Work and K-12 Schools Casebook - Phenomenological Perspectives.  Routledge Press, 2016.   My contribution to this Masters of Social Work level college text book describes my work creating a comprehensive social work program in an alternative education setting within the Union City school system.    
Hi, my name is Dr. Eric Williams and I am the social worker here at Thomas Jefferson elementary school. I have worked in the Union City school system for over twenty years. Jefferson school is a very special place for me for several reasons.  I began my career as a school social worker right here at Jefferson school in 1996!  Going back even further,  I was born and raised in Union City.  I grew up in the neighborhood surrounding Jefferson, spending my days playing in Jefferson schoolyard and even attended Jefferson as a student.  As the school social worker, my role here at Jefferson is to support your child's social and emotional growth.  I work with our school's administration and teachers to help children develop into happy, well-adjusted young learners. Working with students individually, in small groups and in classroom settings, my goal is to provide students with any support they might need in order to succeed.  
I look forward to meeting you to discuss how we can work together to help your child reach their full potential here at Jefferson school.
Dr. Eric Williams
