I play an active role in PBIS and assist with behavior intervention.  Currently, I am teaching Second Step (our social-emotional learning curriculum) to all Washington students. Here is a link that explains the Second Step program.

I have worked in education for over 10 years and love working in this field. 

Fun fact: I worked and lived at a boarding school for 6 years. I lived and cared for 18 teenage girls for an entire school year, 6 years in a row. That is where I gained most of my knowledge of working with students. I am still in contact with most of them.
