One issue that schools in the country have all begun to take on over the last few years is social emotional and mental stability issues. Six years ago, PUSD began to train teachers and fund staffing to support students’ social emotional needs. This past year, our district took that movement to another level by providing a director position to oversee the many programs and several staff dedicated to this cause. I am excited to introduce you to our new Social Emotional Director, Jessy Stickel.
Joe Howard, Superintendent of Prescott Unified School District
I’m so happy to get an opportunity to connect with all of you. I have been with PUSD for 7 years now as an Academic Advisor, Student Success Coach, and now as the Social Emotional Director.
What an honor to be with a district that values building social emotional capacity. Together we are creating opportunities for our students, staff, and families to increase their self and social awareness, providing tools for healthy relationships through positive engagement, and giving them the resources to make constructive choices that honor their goals.
To accomplish this I have chosen to focus on four main areas of delivery. Culture, which is our district’s beliefs, climate, what our practices are that we participate in daily, collaboration with our community organizations and resources, and lastly our onsite coaching and counseling services.
What this looks like on a daily/weekly/monthly basis is:
|Culture: Our Beliefs That Drive Us As A District
|Climate: Practices We Participate In
|Collaboration: Community Organizations & Resources
||Coaching and Counseling Services:
If you have any questions, ideas, or concerns please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to talking with you.
