A group of students focused on social emotional learning (SEL) and getting in touch with the decision-making process at their educational institutions recently gave their first presentation to the Taos Municipal Schools board of education on Wednesday (May 10) at Ranchos Elementary School.

Mark Richert, SEL coordinator for the Taos Municipal Schools, introduced the presentation, which was written, arranged and performed by the students participating in the program. Richert himself is the faculty adviser for the group, which is composed of students from Taos Middle School and Taos High School.

This is a great program to have to create the leadership, understanding and commuication skills to the next generation of our society, Upward Bound was a federaly funded program to provide academic assistance in understanding the basis of acadmic subjects run by the Universities. This is at the different high school level. I will be interested in following this subject.
