Grant Elementary Social Worker Sierra Marsh received MEF grant funding to expand her amazing tools for helping kids with behavior management. Her focus has been to include self-regulated de-escalation kits that students can come in and use or check out as needed.
All of these are sensory, meaning they offer students the ability to use each of their five senses to regulate emotions and work through learning blocks effectively. She’s also working to develop and improve social skills and behavior management, bringing together small groups of students to collaborate and problem-solve in fun and interesting ways.
MEF partners with the community to fund educator grants that help students grow.
