Lisa Kimball - lkimball@watervillek12.org - I am the second and third grade social worker. My education spans UMO/UMF/Westfield/USM/West Chester/UNE. I have both regular education and SPED degrees and my LCSW in clinical social work. I am also a registered Maine Guide. The bulk of my career has been in adventure/experiential/ alternative education, children’s therapy and now school social work.

Audrey Shaw - ashaw@watervillek12.org - I am the kindergarten and first grade Counselor here at GJMS. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from the University of Southern Maine in 2005. I received my Master's Degree in School Counseling from Austin Peay State University in 2011. I returned to APSU in 2012 to complete the coursework necessary to become licensed as a Clinical Professional Counselor. I am currently continuing my education at Capella University while pursuing a PhD in Educational Psychology with a specialization in Youth and Adolescent Development. Since the spring of 2014 I have worked as a public school and outpatient counselor. I have worked with children and adults ages 4 and older in a variety of school and home settings. I enjoy helping students discover and practice the skills that will help them become the best version of themselves, as well as working with parents to help promote a healthy child-parent relationship.

I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of Maine at Orono in 2013. My credentials are LCSW which I received in 2017 as a fully licensed clinical social worker.

I look forward to working with children, their families and staff to create an environment that best suits our students needs.
