Welcome to East Lee Middle School! My name is Miss Kiyoka Watkins. I am excited to be your school social worker here at East Lee Middle School.  My role is to support the learning environment.  Along with the teachers and staff, I try to remove any barriers to learning. I have been fortunate to be a social worker for twenty-four years. Working with children is my joy.  In preparation for my current job,  I earned a  BA in Psychology from Rutgers University and completed my MSW from New York University.  I am a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed clinical addiction specialist. I am fortunate that my training has prepared me to work with children!
