What I do
As the Director of Student Support, I help students navigate different challenges that come up over the course of the day, whether socially, emotionally or academically. My goal is to empower them to believe in themselves, tap into their unique talents and be the best version of themselves.
How I make a difference at YTCTE
I love to inspire kids to think beyond their comfort zones and challenge them to reach their fullest potential. Teach them to have grit and perseverance and never give up! I am there to cheer them on and encourage them that there is nothing they can’t do!
My favorite part about what I do
I love watching my students smile and how proud they feel of themselves when they overcome a challenge. You know that “a-ha” moment when a child finally gets something or comes up with a brilliant idea of their own? It’s priceless. Sometimes it takes a long time to get there, but it is always worth the effort.
I love working and collaborating with such an amazing team of professionals. The warmth and love is felt throughout the school. Everyone has the same goal, making sure every student is happy and their needs are met academically, socially and emotionally.
