This is all about being flexible, adjusting and learning and growing together. Please let us know your thoughts. On the Hamline webpage their is a form to fill out if you need support, whether it be academics or more social emotional. https://www.spps.org/hamline .

I'm excited to share with you that if you have a 5th grader at Hamline Elementary, starting next week I will be starting personal learning plan meetings with them. I will be scheduling 1on1 virtual meetings with the students to create their Xello account. The purpose behind this is to get students to become aware of their strengths, interests and the different pathways to their careers and educational goals. Students will have the opportunity to reflect on their interests and choose courses and extra curricular activities based on their academic and career destination. Your student will see an invite on their schoology page on where and how they can meet with me.

Winter is fast approaching and we want all of our students to be prepared for the long winter season ahead. If your child is in need of a warm winter coat and accessories, The Salvation Army has begun their Coats for Kids distribution. Please call your local Salvation Army or visit their website for more information.

Mental Health Practitioner / Therapist
My name is Sharice Zaccardi and I am the Mental Health Practitioner from Community School Collaborative. I provide Therapy to students and their families. (Play therapy is my favorite.) My undergrad is in Psychology and I received a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a few short hours and a national exam away from being able to use the title Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT).
I grew up in the Twin Cities and I am excited to give back to St. Paul by supporting kiddos and families with Mental Health services. I am here to plant seeds within these kiddos and with the right amount of care they will each flourish into something beautiful and unique.
In my spare time I love to celebrate small victories and live by the motto “Celebrate Life” & “Yay all day” I try to travel often and my favorite place is New Orleans, oh the beauty! Other things I love: Candy, Halloween, The Vikings, Laughter, Conversations, Music, Good Friends, Family, Sleeping, Reading, and of course RETAIL THERAPY.
