Adoptive Parent Case Manager
Alaina Mitros has been working in fields that center around children and their families for several years. She grew up in Glenside, Pennsylvania with her parents and three brothers. As a young person, Alaina knew that she would pursue a career in education or social work, seeking to benefit the lives of children. In college, Alaina worked full time as a manager in a local grocery store, growing her communication skills and “people skills” in ways that would have long-standing effects. She worked as a nanny as well, which kept her love of education and care-taking active. In 2012, Alaina graduated from Temple University with a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Secondary Education.
Alaina immediately went to work after college as a Managing Director in a remedial learning center in Abington, Pennsylvania. This gave her hands on experiences with a vast array of students and their families, all of whom came to the center with different backgrounds socially, economically, and educationally. This role challenged Alaina and helped her to grow professionally in leaps and bounds. Although this experience was invaluable, Alaina knew that she wanted to move on from it to teach in a classroom of her own.
Today, Alaina teaches middle school English Language Arts at Queen of Angels, a private school in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. Her interest in working in the adoption field comes from so many years of experience strengthening her ability to connect with people and to serve families in need of an advocate. Alaina lives in Abington, Pennsylvania with her husband and her dog.
“I am so passionate about the work that I do as a caseworker at Haven Adoptions because it allows me to fulfill my dream of bonding with people on a daily basis and helping to serve others. I feel blessed to be able to meet so many special people seeking to open their lives and hearts to adoption. The staff at Haven are incredible, supportive, and professional women. Most importantly, they CARE.”
