Get to know your Social Worker

My name is Crystal VanCoevern, LMSW and I am privileged to say that I began my work with USD 240 during the 2014-15 school year as a student intern under the supervision of Rosemary Neaderhiser, LSCSW.   For my undergraduate education, I attended Kansas Wesleyan University majoring in Counseling Addictions and Human Services. Upon graduation in 2007 I began work as a juvenile case manager with Central Kansas Mental Health Center. During my journey I have met many amazing individuals who ultimately helped to guide me within my career endeavors.  I applied and was accepted to the Social Work Masters Program at Wichita State University in 2013.  After graduating with my Master’s Degree in 2015, I began my official work as a “School Social Worker” here at USD 240 Twin Valley Unified Schools.   


Currently, I live in Bennington Kansas with my husband- Tyler VanCoevern and children- Jay VanCoevern (16), Nathan VanCoevern (6), and Kyzer VanCoevern (1).  These boys keep me very busy, and I love every minute of it.  I am very passionate for my family and my work.  I aspire to do more and be more everyday in the most positive way possible.  To say that I am grateful to work with the staff and students here would be an understatement.  For this, I thank you- and look forward to everyday and opportunity I have to work with and amongst you.
