Kids are amazing. Every time I say they can’t amaze me anymore, because I know how amazing they are, they do.
Our vision is that each school would have a full-time school psychologist, a full-time social worker, and a full-time mental health partner to ensure we are able to focus on prevention and promotion of mental health.
I always get asked, ‘How do you create a vibrant, diverse, inclusive pathway for people to come into the teaching profession?' And my biggest takeaway is start early.
I know what it’s like to have people think you won't accomplish something. So we operate under the mindset that it’s not too hard, that we can, and we will. We’re going to do it.
My thing is: Kids are gifted all day, every day. We need to make sure they’re getting what they need and deserve in their regular environment.
We want kids to learn from experts who have the credibility to teach the class.
What else can I get [students] to enjoy? For me, it's still the part that I love about education as a whole. There's always something to problem-solve, to think through. There's always a challenge.
How do we get kids back to normal? You can’t do that through educational reinforcement alone. You have to create big new opportunities, not the same opportunities.
