TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love engaging providing educators with social-emotional and life-skills resources to engage multicultural urban youth populations! For nearly two decades I have worked with students and participants whose ages have ranged from nursery school through high school and young adults. This includes: court and gang-involved, LGBT. teen mothers, and special needs populations. Throughout my career I've taught, counseled, ensured supports and academic intervention services, supervised, designed curriculum, and developed programs. A few of these programs include; Advisory/ Family Group, Conflict Resolution, Managing Difficult Behaviors, life, social-emotional skills, and Rites of Passage. I've also conducted staff professional development trainings on classroom management, program development and implementation, as well as conducted trainings on various other topics.
