Christine LeGuizamo is a licensed social worker serving as the Program Director of Mental Health at New Harmony High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. New Harmony is a growing charter school with a mission to "Foster an interconnectedness of people, land, air, and water that prepares students for college, careers, and beyond." And part of that interconnectedness, as Christine explains, is "the intertwining of academics and social-emotional part of each student. We very much serve the whole child and understand the importance of serving the whole child. When it comes to academic learning, it is so important to understand that to get a student to conceptualize algebra, you need to also understand what happened at home last night that could impede their learning for the next day."
Join the conversation and get the details on how Christine and New Harmony High are accomplishing that.
