|Triumph Steps Founder Recognized by Miami Dade County Public Schools
On March 21st, Beatriz Martinez-Penalver was recognized by the School Board of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the fourth largest school district in the United States, for her commitment to students, their mental wellness and emotional literacy nationwide. I am very grateful for this recognition and hope to bring Emotional Literacy to all children. Not only does the Triumph Steps program aid in preventing suicide, depression and bullying in children, it also lessens absenteeism and gives teachers new tools to not only do their jobs more efficiently, but with greater joy and appreciation of the brilliant young minds they are charged to educate. The video below, narrated by my daughter, showcases the importance of mental wellness in schools.
