Hello, I am Jessica Luttrell. Some of you may already know me as Jessica Walters, but I recently married my husband, Steve. I have worked for Kearney Public School since 2017 and have worked at Horizon Middle School, Sunrise Middle School, and Kearney High School. I am now employed full time at Horizon Middle School as the School Social Worker. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Mental Health Professional, but is just a very long way to say I love to help students and their families and support their social, emotional, and mental health needs.
I earned my Master's Degree in Social Welfare from the University of Kansas, Rock Chalk Jayhawk! I moved to Nebraska in 2016, but am still a Kansas girl at heart. During the summers you can find me on the lake fishing, taking care of the animals on my hobby farm, or gardening. During the school year I spend a lot of time getting to know the student in my building. As a Social Worker I am first and foremost an advocate and I strive to help students make the transition from elementary to middle school as easy as possible.
