Mrs. Mackenize Whitaker

I'm Mackenzie Whitaker and I am the School Social Worker at Odyssey Elementary. My family and I moved here in May 2022 from Illinois. This is my first year as a Social Worker in Colorado. I received my Master’s in Social Work from the University of Illinois and I have had a passion for helping students develop improved social-emotional skills and wellbeing ever since. I love the teamwork and dedication to our students that I’ve seen throughout our building this school year.

When I’m not working, I am usually with my husband and our 5-year-old and 2-year-old sons. We enjoy hiking, spending time in the sunshine, and doing art together.
