Building Resilience - Helping Students Overcome Life's Challenges


Our quarterly Coffee with The Counselors meeting addressed this topic of building resilience in students. Helping them overcome life's challenges to get to a happy, productive life is the first step. We went beyond that to discussing how to also help build 'Grit' in students so they can challenge themselves, reach their goals and be amazing!
