WesternElementary School

My name is Denise Nuzzo and I am the school counselor at Western Elementary school. My role is to support all students socially and emotionally throughout the year. I promote social emotional learning by going into classrooms several times a year to do whole class lessons such as RULER training. I also support students via individual or group counseling.
Below, you will find resources on the RULER approach.
If you have any questions, please feel free to message me on Parent Square.
Here's to a great school year!

RULER is a systemic approach to SEL developed at the Center for Emotional Intelligence. RULER aims to infuse the principles of emotional intelligence into the immune system of preK to 12 schools, informing how leaders lead, teachers teach, students learn, and families support students.

RULER is an acronym for the five skills of emotional intelligence: Recognizing, Understanding, Labeling, Expressing and Regulating.
