This week's Teacher Feature is not a homeroom teacher or a specials teacher, but our school counselor, Mrs. Siobhan Badeaux. She may not have the title of teacher, but she is teaching our students daily how to cope and succeed.

"My work at St. Augustine is to support students to reach their fullest potential emotionally and academically; it is very rewarding work," says Mrs. Badeaux.

This year in particular Mrs. B has implemented the "Ruler" initiative, an emotional intelligence program designed by Yale University.

"The 'Ruler' initiative is a wonderful framework for all of us. Students are all learning to handle emotions in healthier ways."

Thank you for your mindful work, Mrs. Badeaux!
