Ms. Barbara Burke, MA, LCSW

Welcome to a new year!  My name is Barbara Burke and I am a School Social Worker.  For undergrad I attended the University of Kansas and majored in English Literature. I attended Loyola University of Chicago for my MSW and Golden Gate University in San Francisco for my MA in applied Psychology.    My first job as a social worker was working with homeless and runaway teenagers in San Francisco.  This experience helped me realize that help on the front line in schools is essential.  This is my first year at Dream Academy and I am very excited to be here!   For the last several years I worked at a theraputic day school in Chicago, IL.
