Ms. Madison Brawner
Hello ~ my name is Madison Brawner and I am the school social worker at Hunters Creek Middle School!
I was born and raised in Colorado until moving to Kentucky in 2009, where my family and I lived until moving to North Carolina in February of 2021. Through my time in school, I was involved in theater, academic team, and other various extracurriculars that I enjoyed and that pushed me to grow academically and personally. Growing up in a household that prioritized service and open communication, I knew that I wanted my career path to focus on helping others. My family has been involved in the church and our surrounding community my entire life, so I frequently volunteered and served in youth groups and other kids' outreach programs. Interacting with, understanding, and empathizing with kids and helping them through their experiences as they grow and navigate through life has always come naturally to me. I am a people person -- gaining and maintaining the trust and confidence of those that I work and interact with through demonstrating character and integrity is a significant part of who I am.
As the school social worker at HCMS, I serve as a bridge between the community, home, and school. Some of my responsibilities and goals in this position include assessing the needs of students, staff, families, and the community; advocating for appropriate services and resources for students and families; providing direct services to students and families to address any concerns; and openly monitoring, communicating, and planning with staff/students/families to address students' attendance, academic success, and social experience.
