Shannon Cetinkaya

Hello Parents and Students!  My name is Shannon Cetinkaya and I am the school social worker for Jacksonville Commons Elementary School.  This is my second year at JCES and I am so happy to a part of such a talented team and supportive community.

My primary responsibility at JCES is to remove any barrier that prevents a student from fulfilling his or her academic potential.  I also address issues regarding attendance, behavioral health concerns, social emotional concerns, and resources/needs; and linking families to resources and community providers.

I am at JCES on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7:00am-11:15am and on Tuesdays from 7:00am-3:00pm.  

Thank you for all that you do to support the success and well-being of your child and our school.  I look forward to working with you this year and to helping your child learn and grow at JCES.
