Michele Preuss, LMSW - SCHS Social Worker

  • I first began working with Silver Creek High School as a practicum student while I was completing my Masters in Social Work during the 2016/2017 school year. I was then hired full-time at the end of the 2018 school year. I received my undergraduate degree from James Madison University in 2010 with a bachelors degree in Modern Foreign Languages and a minor in Cultural Communication. I completed my Masters in Social Work degree from Boise State University, graduating in 2018.

    My work experience has been varied over the years, and includes both non-profit and healthcare work. I have worked at Canyon View in Twin Falls as a social work practicum intern helping those with acute mental illness (diagnosing, leading groups, and providing one-on-one counseling). I have also worked at the St Luke's Outpatient Mental Health Clinic in Twin Falls as a social work practicum intern, seeing individuals and couples in one-on-one therapy. I am currently receiving clinical supervision in order to sharpen my skills and help serve our students more effectively.

    My therapeutic interests lie in somatic experiencing/coping skills (i.e. TRM, DBT, and Mindfulness) and all trauma-informed practices. I am currently volunteering with the Flourish Foundation in their Compassionate Leaders program. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, friends, and dogs in the mountains either rock climbing, trail running, hiking, or backcountry skiing. Please feel free to call me with any concerns you may have regarding one of our students, or if you want to learn more about how we incorporate Social Emotional Learning here at Silver Creek High School. Go Dragons!

    Having housing troubles? We are here to help.

    The Blaine County School District understands that unexpected, adverse economic conditions may occur to any family at any time. This type of hardship may cause a change in a desired living condition and a loss of housing. It could mean that a family must move in with relatives, friends or other people until the economic hardship passes. It may mean the living conditions are no longer adequate in accommodations (lack of running water, electricity, or other utilities). The Blaine County School District wants to make sure these conditions do not negatively impact the education of your child. If you are experiencing economic hardship that impacts your housing, please talk to your School Social Worker, to discuss education possibilities and assistance that may be available. We are here to support you.
