On May 30th, our school social worker Ms. Kenia Jeanniton spoke at the annual UFT Spring Education Conference. The event included guest speakers such as Mayor Bill de Blasio, Chancellor Carmen Farina, and AFT President Randi Weingarten. The gala luncheon was held at the Manhattan Hilton.
Ms. Kenia spoke about her collaboration with interns from Columbia University's School of Social Work and Hunter College's Silberman School of Social Work and how their efforts support the social and emotional needs of our students. The UFT Community Learning Schools asked her to highlight her ground breaking approach that helps our students increase and develop their social and emotional health.
