Ms. Weiss is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and this is her 20th year at Kennedy High School. She earned her undergraduate degree in Child Psychology from the University of Minnesota and her Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of St. Thomas. Lezlie's primary responsibilities at Kennedy include working with students identified as Emotionally and Behaviorally Disordered.
Lezlie's philosophy in working with students can be exemplified through the following quote: "Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed, well-considered and yet fervent public conviction that the most deadly of all possible sins is the mutilation of a child's spirit." Dr. Erik Erikson
