“Social Emotional Learning is important to me because we cannot afford to sit back and ignore the social emotional needs of our scholars and staff. So much has transpired in the world that we have to be proactive and address the needs. By building relationships and developing a trusting environment, we present an opportunity for scholars and staff to develop skills to help them manage situations.”

Ms. Barnett is currently a Vice Principal at J.P. Ryon Elementary. She has been an educator for over 23 years.
