She has worked as an educator for more than 15 years in a variety of school settings, focusing most of her time on children at risk for developing serious behavioral problems. Through her work training and implementing SEL programs in schools, she has developed a unique method of training teachers to learn how to implement social and emotional learning with an analytical perspective. This perspective can assist teachers in addressing challenging behavior in classrooms, preparing classes to be successful in all academic activities and if needed, choosing which programs to implement in their classrooms.
