Mrs. Joanna Karibian

Hello! My name is Joanna Karibian and I am the School Social Worker proudly serving Concord High School. I have been in the Social Work field for over 12 years.  My family and I relocated from Long Island, NY in 2016. Prior to joining Cabarrus County Schools, I previously worked for Davidson College in the Counseling Department.  I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Human Services and Psychology from the University of Bridgeport and my Master's degree in Social Work from New York University.    

As a School Social Worker, my goal is to serve as a liaison between home, school, and community partners to help students and families overcome obstacles in order to reach their full potential. Some of the services I provide include but are not limited to: crisis intervention, individual/group counseling, case management, parent education, family outreach, information/referrals to community resources, attendance monitoring/intervention, and McKinney-Vento/homeless education support.
