Helping every child have a positive impact on the world.

As a 20-year educator, I have found that my brightest students are often the most socially and emotionally challenged. These challenges unfortunately can become a focal point, and limit the type of support a child may receive on their journey.

I am passionate about equipping every young person with the tools they need to remove internal barriers and maximize their potential. 

After personally seeing strong growth in a diverse group of learners over the years, I am offering this social emotional learning (SEL) enrichment program on the principle that every child can develop and excel in life!
