Navigating the social challenges of a middle school community is a collaborative effort. Using the SEL frameworks, this workshop will breakdown the Social Awareness and Relationship Skills competencies into user friendly, fun, and proactive lessons and activities for your students.
There will be active discussion and problem solving to ensure that you as the practitioner/educator are comfortable teaching and modeling the skills within these areas. You will learn to tailor activities to the needs of your students and school population.
My name is Jessica Golden-Harrington and I am a certified School Counseling Director and Special Educator. My years as a student at UNH solidified my desire to be a lifelong learner.
I started my career as a paraeducator in a traditional public school and have worked as counselor, special educator, and school administrator in a variety of settings including public schools. private therapeutic day schools, and Chartered Public Schools. I am the former Assistant Director and Head of Counseling at Academy for Science and Design Chartered Public School.

I believe that student success starts and grows from a place of empathy, compassion, and care.
