Ms. Jerlyn Bright

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Jerlyn Bright-Thigpen (you can call me Ms. Bright) and I am the School Social Worker (General Education) at Marion Law Academy. This is my third year as a School Social Worker. I am very excited to be a part of Detroit Public Schools Community District! 

I want to let you all know the ways that I can be an assistance to you and your child(ren). As a School Social Worker, it is my role to assist in increasing communication between home and school, facilitate individual and group sessions with students, and to aid parents with strategies that can be helpful outside of school with their child(ren). Also, I can assist with providing outside resources beneficial to children and families (family services, therapy, and other community resources). My contact information is 248-325-8755 or you can reach via email at
