  • Hello! My name is Lisa Dierking. I am the Family School Advocate for Southwest Early Childhood Center. I am proud to serve JCPS families and really love what I do. I have a passion for Early Childhood and for Social Work so this is my dream job!

    I received my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Truman State University and my Master’s in Social Work from Missouri State University. In addition, I am currently working on my Educational Specialist degree in Mental Health Practices in Schools.

    Previously I have worked as a Parent Educator with Parents As Teachers, School-Based Mental Health Therapist with Community Mental Health Center in AR, FAST (Families and Schools Together) Coordinator, and more! 
    I am married and have three children!  As many of you know I am Shoney’s mom too. Shoney is our school Therapy Dog. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call me!
