PS 204 welcomes Merlin Pichardo

Greetings, my name is Merlyn Pichardo. I am the new Student in Housing (STH) Social worker at P.S 204. I am excited for the rest of the 2021-2022 school year. I graduated from Fordham University last May 2021, and this will be my first year as a school Social worker. However, I have worked for the Department of Education as a paraprofessional with special education students for over five years.

My goal is to help students and caretakers navigate their social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties and more. Overall, I am thrilled to work with the PS 204 community! I hope the space I am creating makes everyone feel safe and welcomed.

If you ever need to reach me, please feel free to contact me at:
