La'Trecia Glover, Student Assistance Program Specialist
Office: 704-260-6600 ext 41210
Hello students and families! I’d like to explain a little about my experience and my role. I earned my Bachelors of Social Work from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and Master’s of Social Work from the University of South Carolina. In my role as the student assistance program specialist, I provide supports to students with known or suspected drug and/or alcohol related challenges. My experience related to substances is around opioids and prevention services. I provide informal assessments, help students and families develop appropriate coping skills, and provide referrals to community partners for substance abuse and community interventions. I also offer formal and informal guidance and motivation. I am a Resiliency Educator and Listening Circle Facilitator through Resources for Resilience, and I am Catch My Breath Certified. Students can be referred to me by teachers, staff, parents, or students may refer themselves. I joined Cabarrus County Schools in December 2019. As a native of Cabarrus County and a graduate of Cabarrus County Schools, I’m grateful to be serving my community in this role.

The past year has been tough. Thankfully, our county has taken several initiatives to make the mental health of our students and parents a priority. We will continue to have guest speakers for the remainder of the school year to provide us with tangible skills for resilience and prevention. On May 4, 2021 at 6pm, we will host Deona Frierson. Mrs. Frierson will speak with parents about "Thriving During The Pandemic." To join the session, please click here.
For the next several weeks, we will have listening circles to provide additional supports. I cannot speak highly enough about the effectiveness of these groups. Please look at the calendar and plan to join a few sessions.
