In today’s episode, we connect with Nelba and explore elements that are necessary for healing. The last year and a half our schools have been themed with grief and loss. Nelba shares her insights and connects the important role educators play in helping students find a safe place to heal.
Nelba Márquez-Greene is a Marriage and Family Therapist and the founder of The Ana Grace Project. She founded The Ana Grace Project in 2013 as a response to the school shooting in Sandy Hook, Conn., in 2012, which took the life of her daughter, Ana Grace Márquez-Greene. The Ana Grace Project is dedicated to promoting love, community, and connection for every child and family through three lead initiatives: partner schools, professional development, and music and the arts.
