One Teacher’s Solitary SEL Experience in a Large Urban High School

Angela Benedetto, Ph.D.

I taught Family and Consumer Science in a large urban high school upstate New York in the city of Schenectady, for many years. Schenectady has the reputation of being a tough school city with an extremely diverse population of students, many of whom struggled with poverty and some who were at risk.
