Anna M. Williams, LCSW

This is Anna M. Williams third year with Baltimore County Public Schools. She provides social work services to students at Loch Raven Technical Academy as well as Cockeysville Middle School. Williams loves the energy of these young adolescents.

Through a partnership with the Maryland Food Bank and other service providers, Williams has implemented a myriad of services at Loch Raven Technical Academy. Loch Raven now has a full pantry which services the parents and families of the school. Through community collaborations and school staff teamwork, Williams was able to acquire a refrigerator and a freezer for the pantry, which allows families to obtain full balanced meals. Parents are able to visit the pantry twice a month and on an emergency basis.  This is the pantry’s third year of operation.

Additionally students receive a hot balanced meal after school prior to attending their afterschool activities. 

Approximately 50 students per day receive this meal three days per week. This is also possible through a partnership with the Maryland Food Bank.

This school year, Williams, in conjunction with the school counseling department, implemented a parent speaker series at Loch Raven. Parents attend and enjoy a meal and hear a speaker present on a topic of interest.  Topics have included Adolescent Brain Development and Adolescents and The Use of Social Media. She has also provided in-service training to school staff.

Williams participates in a variety of school activities such as PBIS (Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports) and a weekly enrichment activity with a specific classroom. She helped launch a Girl Scouts troop in the Loch Raven community, and during the holiday season, she collaborated with numerous organizations, such as Santa’s Helpers Anonymous, ACT (Area Churches of Towson), St. Michaels Church and the Baltimore County Police Department. These organizations were able to assist families with food and gifts during Thanksgiving and the winter holidays.

Williams recently became a Mental Health First Aid trainer for BCPS. As a trainer, she will assist and train others in providing mental health services to students.
