A native of southwest Florida, Elizabeth returns to the Tampa area to continue her career working on behalf of youth, educators, and families in collaboration with community stakeholders and businesses. Elizabeth welcomes the challenges and opportunities of aligning resources and leveraging partners to address the needs of the whole child through social emotional learning (SEL). She values and supports the growing movement of social, emotional, and academic well-being of all children. In her role as CEO, Elizabeth and the Frameworks team will build upon this national momentum, working strategically and systematically with districts, school leaders, community partners, and families to drive change and enrich the climate of collaboration on behalf of our youth. Elizabeth will be reaching out to Tampa Bay’s many community organizations and businesses to forge partnerships that will assist in driving SEL forward.
Why You Work at Frameworks:
Frameworks is fiercely committed to delivering high-quality, comprehensive social and emotional learning supports to the community. The opportunities that lie ahead for this organization are many, and the ability to lead this next chapter is deeply humbling and incredibly exhilarating. I am focused on accelerating the innovation and execution that students, educators, parents, businesses, and community organizations need from us. I could not be more confident in our ability to succeed and make vast differences in the culture of communities, nor more honored to lead this great organization. Through Frameworks, we will work to ensure the children in our community develop the skills for optimal learning and that our educators/teachers are provided the professional development, ongoing coaching and resources necessary to embed social, emotional and cognitive skills into academic learning. Evidence shows that students in these learning settings are more likely to achieve success both now and in their future. And isn’t that what we all want for our kids?
