Social Work

Rachel Strong

My name is Rachel Strong, and I have happily been the School Social Worker at SY Jackson since 2008.  I have been a Social Worker for over 23 years and have been with Albuquerque Public Schools for over 10 years.  Currently, I provide School Social Work services for three elementary schools.  Primarily I work with students in special education, but I am always available to any staff or parent who may need assistance.


I was born and raised in Albuquerque, and except for five years living in Gilbert, Arizona, I have lived in our wonderful city.  I have a Bachelor in Social Work and one in Psychology from New Mexico State – Go Aggies!!  I have a Masters of Social Work from New Mexico Highlands.  I am married and a proud mother of three boys ages, 30, 19 and 17.


SY Jackson’s staff and parents are great and I truly enjoy working with them.  This is a wonderful community, and I feel very lucky to work at this school. 


Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.  You can reach me via e-mail at strong_ra@aps.edu, or call the school directly at 296-9536.  Thanks for sharing your kids with us!
