Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!!! My name is Keisha Gatling and I am the School Social Worker at Early College of Technology High School and Early College High School. I have had 20 wonderful years in the social work field. I am going into my 4th year working in the school system and I absolutely love it! I have been in the scial work field my entire career and I can think of no better way to spend my days. I am originally from Connecticut but have spent the last twenty five years in North Carolina. I obtained a Bachelors in Social Work from Livingstone College. I then went on to obtain a Masters in Professional Counseling from South University in Columbia, SC. I know ths school year is starting with many unknowns and concerns with our health and safety but please know our schools will follow the given guidelines and staff and myself are here to assist. I would just like to share some reasons you or your child may want to reach out to me. 

    • Change of address due to unavoidable life occurrences
    • Concerns of abuse or neglect
    • Financial issues
    • Homelessness
    • Behavior concerns
    • Referrals needed for services at home
    • Assist with talking to other staff that you feel has not been productive.

    Please feel free to reach me during school hours. If I am unavailable, I will return your call as soon as possible. Thank you!
