    At the middle school level, teachers often end up rather isolated within their grade level teams because of scheduling formats.

    As Administration, impacting the community is crucial to our Center. We utilize various outlets throughout our city to connect our families to improve relationships.

    We host family events at our center to encourage early learning importance from the classroom to the home. We occasionally take “polls” or questionnaires to also focus on meeting the needs of our familles.

    I help a school district that is struggling with particularly heavy addiction and trauma issues within the general population, coming into the school campuses as a community counselor to serve as a team member, meeting with K12 individual students and co-facilitating psycho-educational groups with school counselors. The school I’m entering for is hoping to make a significant and lasting shift in school culture and become trauma-sensitive throughout the district from bus drivers to superintendent. I’m excited to be part of this process with such passionate educators. An unexpected plus – the superintendent is a K12 classmate of mine!
