Good episode? Give it some love!
Join us today to hear from Joseph Engelhardt, principal of Alexander Hamilton High School in Elmsford, NY. He discusses how key experiences in his early life (including the loss of his friend to an overdose) led him to the field of education, where his mission is to create a safe learning environment for students that emphasizes wellness. Hear how he has changed the culture so that, rather than being suspended or receiving detention, students learn skills to manage difficult situations.
