Why You Work at Frameworks:
I have always enjoyed getting to know my students and hearing them express themselves, and allowing them to realize they have a valuable voice. Education involves teaching the whole student and providing students the tools to navigate their emotions can allow them to develop more fully, have better relationships, and be more productive in school. Frameworks provides me with the opportunity to use my skills and years in the classroom to promote social and emotional learning to help the students in Hillsborough County to grow and be the best person they can.
