High School Teaching Experience
Taught a traditional high school health class for seniors.
Symposium on Issues Affecting Urban Youth
Taught credit bearing Health and Wellness Courses to high school students in Brooklyn. Courses were designed to raise awareness of social problems, provide students with an opportunity to explore issue in their communities and personal experiences that have had a profound impact on their lives. This course was also designed to teach SEL skills related to self-awareness and emotion management. and raise awareness about mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and substance abuse. This interactive class allowed students to act as social scientist; researching social programs and developing prevention and intervention strategies to share with their peers through the creation of a public service announcement project.
Support Groups emerged from the courses at the end of each semester so students could continue to work on their social-emotional wellbeing.
