December of 2014

What do you enjoy most about working with the students you serve?
I like being able to talk with student and give them a safe place to be themselves and talk about anything on their mind. It’s very rewarding and challenging building the relationships.
I love my job. This job allows me to have a life, be myself and do what i do naturally (build relationships and support others) and get paid for it:)
Describe a student outcome or success that you are most proud of.
I had a student that was on the verge of being expelled from DPS and now he has turned a complete 180 in his behavior and effort in school.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Be there and continue to be there, whether or not you see the difference right off the bat, you’ll make a difference if you continue to stand by your students.
