“SEL is important to me because it’s important for us to teach the whole child. It’s not just about developing a student’s academic skills, they also need opportunities to become good people. Students need opportunities to learn how to respond to challenges and how to take care of their social emotional needs.”
Nan Lujan has worked in education for the past 20 years. Nan is the School Improvement Grant Coordinator for the Durham Public Schools working on a variety of projects and programs within the county’s school system. She loves to relax by running, as a method to restore her well being.
