Mrs. Gooden's Family


2021 will be my first year at Westwood as your Social Worker! I am excited to be joining Westwood High School and becoming a part of the Westwood Warrior team!. A little about me, originally from Chicago, IL, I moved to Mesa, Az, with my husband and three sons. I enjoy spending my time with my family, reading, listening to music, and traveling.

I completed my undergraduate degree in Child Protection and Juvenile Justice at Bellevue University and then received my Master's of Social Work at Arizona State University. Both prepared me to best help the students and families at Westwood.

As your school social worker, I am dedicated to connecting students and their families to the needed resources. We want our students to be focused on school and learning here at Westwood High School, but we know this is difficult when their basic needs are not being met.

As Westwood's school social worker, I am also passionate about helping our students with their social and emotional needs. I can provide students with the coping skills to help them process what they are going through and connect them to further organizations that offer more support. I am here to bridge our Westwood students and their families to the resources within the community. 

I look forward to the school year and meeting the Westwood's families.
