The Marcus L. Ruscitto Charitable Foundation first began partnering with TEAMology to bring its social emotional (SEL) framework to schools in our region three years ago. Since that time, thousands of students have benefited from its integration into their schools curriculum through improved school culture.
The circumstances of the current school year brought learning environment modifications that have directly impacted the social and emotional needs of young students. So, with the foundation's financial support--made possible by your contributions--WQED and TEAMology recently created puppets representative of the framework's characters in order to feature them in complementary digital media, so the TEAM can bring its message wherever students are learning.
The TEAM assembled for the first time: Amelia, Philo, Ruby, Harper, Lamar and Paco.
