Martha Bather


My name is Martha Bather and I am a School Social Worker supporting Hi5-2nd grade at Bryn Mawr Elementary. I have my master's degree in Social Work from St. Catherine University, and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (L.I.C.S.W.). I have been with Minneapolis Public Schools since 2012, and I've also worked with children and families in the therapeutic preschool setting, day treatment, and in-home skills and therapy . 

 As a School Social Worker, I provide a variety of services to our students, families, and school community. I assist school teams in supporting students who have academic or behavior concerns at school and home. I also help families locate and access resources such as mental health services, medical services, food shelves, clothing, and housing. Please feel free to call me if you have any questions about school, attendance, or any other way we can support your child and you. I can be reached directly at (612) 668-2502 or at
