The Blog

Hello World!


Hey there, Social School friends!


A new school year is already off to a great start. The Social School curriculum has been added to the STEP programs in High Schools in Madison County, IL. Beyond the school environment, I have groups running for early elementary, late elementary, middle school and high school boys and girls.


Working in the High Schools has really inspired me. These young people are working hard to improve their friendships and family life. They're focusing on the skills they will need to get and keep jobs.


I've decided I need to try something new, too. That has become this blog. Stop by and see what has caught my interest and what topics are recurring in my work.


As always, I encourage you to reach out through the Contact page if I can be of any assistance.


​Together, lets create a calm,confident and connected community!
