“I think the teaching of social emotional learning skills is vital for today’s students. Practicing and using these skills can literally turn a student’s challenging circumstances into stepping stones that lead to greater resilience, empowerment and a readiness to learn academic content. SEL skills increase a child’s ability to form, recognize and maintain positive relationships.”
Vicki Robinson is currently a school social worker for a Title 1 elementary school and loving the opportunity. In past years, she has primarily worked with students and families at risk for the State of Utah, in private counseling, and as a teacher specialist for their school district.
