AP & Magnet Psychology Teacher,
Central High School, Bridgeport Public Schools
Melissa Gentile is beginning her 8th year teaching and 6th year at Central. She's been a part of the SEL program at Central since 2017 and co-advises the Ambassador and Peer Mentoring program that allows students a voice in building a positive school climate.
Thanks to the NoVo Foundation grant, we have been able to sustain the Ambassadors, present to schools nationwide about our program and create a Mindful Moment Room for the students and staff. SEL is important because it brings humanity into education while helping students and staff to become more empathetic.
