Congratulations to Mrs. Venesia Johnson

Congratulations to our Spring Valley High School social worker, Mrs. Venesia Johnson. She was recently recognized through her work with USC College of Social Work. Mrs. Johnson an alum of USC received the Master of Social Work Field Instructor of the Year Award. She was nominated by MSW graduate Raven Martin.

“I am grateful and truly humbled. It is my belief that it takes a team and collaboration to truly be successful, and it is great to be a part of a team that continually produces competent social workers who are grounded in maintaining their ethics,” Johnson says. “I am honored to be a part of that process. Being such an important part of a students’ educational journey truly makes me feel eager to continue to serve in the role of field instructor.”

According to Johnson, the most satisfying part of being a field instructor and working with students is growing and learning from one another.

“I am always excited when a student shares something new that they have learned in class, and we are able to put it into practice,” Johnson says. “It is my belief that learning is a two-way process, and I am always zealous not to only share my knowledge, but to learn from others around me. I am confident that once a student leaves their placement, that they are ready to make a change and be successful in their future professional roles.”

Field instructors at the College of Social Work provide on-site supervision, advisement, and instruction to BSW and MSW students in the field practicum and promote their development of social work skills, abilities, values, and ethics.
