She has presented her fellowship at Info Sessions, including the Chicago Foundation for Education Workshop, and is an active participant in our Mentor Program. Last year, Hyam moved to Seattle, Washington to take on a new role for Seattle Public Schools as the Social Emotional Learning Consulting Teacher. Her role involves work in district-wide SEL supports and supporting secondary administrators, staff, families, and students in all things SEL.
