Hana El-Afandi, Social Worker

My name is Hana El-Afandi and I am excited to start my first full year here at Grand Meadow! I had the pleasure of joining the Superlark team last year in February of 2023. I have previous work experience in social work supporting foster care homes as well as county work in southern MN. 

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from Winona State University, 2017 where I focused primarily in Child Advocacy Studies and Psychology. 

Please do not hesitate to reach out to me via email at helafandi@gm.k12.mn.us
