Michelle Kotwas

Social Worker

Support Staff

Born and raised in Maryland, my husband and I moved to Colorado with our daughters, now 8 & 6 in 2019.  We live in the Whittier neighborhood and love exploring City Park on bikes.  I enjoy hiking, reading, yoga, and playing trivia with friends.  My daughters currently attend Columbine Elementary school.  We recently adopted a 3 year old Great Dane, named Dobby.  


My social work career started in outpatient mental health, where I worked with families, children and individuals with severe and persistent mental illness.  I then moved to hospital social work in Baltimore, Maryland, and most recently was working as an Addiction Social Worker at UCHealth Anschutz.  I am excited for the next chapter in my career and to get back to working with children and families.  I hope to be able to equip students with the skills they need to thrive in their environment.  I look forward to meeting the team at Steele and getting to know our students and families!
