“I aim to take the positivity gained from experience and begin to implement an SEL classroom where students can achieve a calming solace. In addition, I would like to begin training students as peer mentors. Too often students are left feeling like they do not matter. My aim is to allow students the opportunity to find meaning amongst their peers, as well as their teachers, in an effort to change the community within the school. Furthermore, I would like to create an SEL safe space for faculty and staff.”
