Mr. Peter Shanedling

My name is Peter Shanedling, and I LOVE being the Social Worker at Chelsea Heights! I have worked in St. Paul Schools as a School Social Worker for 21 years.  I have worked at Maxfield, Obama, and American Indian Magnet.  I have a Bachelors degree in Child Psychology from the University of Minnesota.  I received my Masters in Social Work from the College of St. Catherine.  I also have a license in Clinical Social Work. Before becoming a School Social Worker , I worked as a Youth and Camp Director for nine years. 

When I am not at school, I like to spend time with my family, including my wife, 15-year-old son, and my dog, Dollie.  Some of my favorite activities include bird watching, cooking, gardening, and playing soccer.  I love singing and playing my guitar with students.  I also play the harmonica and am still, trying to learn how to play the accordion.

What I love about being a School Social Worker is the opportunities to provide students with skills and support to help them be successful emotionally and socially.

I am available to support all Chelsea Heights students and families, including students who receive Social Work services through Special Education. I can help families locate needed community services, including mental health services, housing services, food, and financial services.
