My name is Angela Rubio and I am the Wraparound Specialist at Whittier Elementary. My primary goal is to connect all student, parents and teachers, to non-academic support and resources. Support includes addressing critical issues such as mental and physical health needs, food insecurity, lack of stable housing, violence, incarceration of a parent, and many other challenges that would hinder student achievement.
When wraparound services are provided along with strong academics and high-quality teaching, schools can truly meet the needs of the whole child. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at the school if you need resources and/or assistance.
I am excited to be at Whittier Elementary and I look forward to serving our students, families and staff.
