Ms. Joette Basham

I am the School Social Worker at Dillard Drive ES. I split my time between this school and another WCPSS elementary school. Prior to joining our school system as a School Social Worker, I have had professional experiences serving a local domestic violence agency, working with Food and Nutrition Services at Wake County Human Services, and assessing reports for Child Protective Services in Durham County. I completed my undergraduate degree at Meredith College and received my Master of Social Work from UNC-Chapel Hill.

In my spare time, I enjoy the company of my spouse, 2 little boys, and my dogs. My favorite place to vacation is in the mountains of NC. Two of my favorite books to read with my children are The Tailypo and The Napping House.
