Welcome! My name is Carolyn Blotnicki and I am the Chemical Health Counselor for both North and South Junior High in School District 742. My role is to provide prevention and intervention education regarding substance use to our middle school students. I have been with the district since the 2021-2022 school year. I work closely with building administration and grade level counselors as well as parents to help support students who have experienced a chemical violation within our schools or who have reported struggling with substance use in some capacity. I can also provide resources to family members and students for extra support outside of the school system.
Prior to my time in the middle schools, I worked in a local outpatient treatment center servicing their adolescent (ages 12-19) substance-use treatment program. I am available in-person at North on Monday and Wednesday and South, on Tuesday and Thursday and Fridays are alternating. I am more than willing to make time to be at either school for parent meetings. I look forward to working with you and your child.
