Bronx Collaborative HS
Lead Social Worker
Bronx, NY
I'm a social worker educator supervisor at BxCHS and a CES workshop presenter. I am interested in understanding how brain science can help us help students as well as ourselves to heal trauma and aid recovery on multiple levels-emotions, mind and body. When people are less frozen/less frenetic they can be more in their optimum flow for functioning better thus learning better. #circles, #social-emotional learning, #trauma-sensitive schools, #mindfulness
I am also a crafter who enjoys the mindfulness of the arts. I am a knitter and am currently into basket weaving.
