A day-in-the-life of CRS for me is building and fostering relationships with students. Without meaningful and positive relationships, I believe that our time together in the classroom wouldn’t be as productive. One of the parts of my job that brings me joy is being an advisor to seventh and eighth graders. Over the course of two years, I get to help students navigate what can be a challenging time in their life.
