Social/Emotional/Behavioral Effective Practice Specialists

  • Mission

    Our team exists to increase student social, emotional, and behavioral growth by working collaboratively to provide culturally responsible support to teams. We accomplish this through problem-solving, providing resources, increasing educator understanding of students who lack SEL skills, and implementing best practices.
