Degrees and Certifications:
Hi! My name is Tara Pratt-Brooks and I am the School Social Worker at North Forest Pines Elementary. I earned both my Bachelor and Master of Social Work degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University (Go Rams!!!) in Richmond, VA. After graduating, I worked several years in various roles in community mental health in Central Virginia and Wake County. I have been working as a School Social Work with WCPSS since 2015 and have been part of the North Forest Pines Elementary (Go Falcons!!!) family since 2018.
I was born in upstate New York but raised in Stafford, Virginia. My husband and I moved from Richmond, VA to Raleigh in 2006 and now live in Wake Forest, NC. We have two wonderful children who attend WCPSS schools. We enjoy going to the beach, listening to live music, and taking our two rescue dogs, Hilton and Bailey, on long walks. I am very excited to be part of the North Forest Pines Elementary family and look forward to working with the many wonderful students, families and staff!
