About Us

Our mission is to better the student mind through wellness-based text campaigns that deliver inspiration, proactive intervention and actionable insights.

Our Approach

PBIS

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based three-tiered framework for improving and integrating all the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day. It is a way to support everyone – especially students with disabilities – to create the kinds of schools where all students are successful.

PBIS is not a curriculum you purchase or something you learn during a one-day professional development training. It is a commitment to addressing student behavior through systems change. When it’s implemented well, students achieve improved social and academic outcomes, schools experience reduced exclusionary discipline practices, and school personnel feel more effective.

SEL

Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

I was born in Arizona and raised in Brazil. I have a bachelor’s degree in being easy to talk to and a master’s in compassion. A couple of my favorite things to do are helping others and practicing good habit building. I love being a part of the BetterMinds team because I get to combine my education and experience with my passion for making new friends, and I get to travel, a lot! I can be a bit chatty, and I look forward to getting to know YOU better!!
