ASCA Conference Attendee

This was the best sectional I went to at this conference. I could have gone to a whole day training on this subject. Thank you for the work you do on MTSS, I left feeling good knowing that I have a lot of things in place that fall into the MTSS category. I can’t wait to read the book!

Loved the focus on antiracism and culturally sustaining elements in MTSS

ASCA Conference Attendee

Enjoyed how you aligned the ideas of MTSS and the work school counselors do. Appreciated the discussion on cultural awareness and how to make sure our common expectations and language are relevant to our communities and the students and families we work with!
