What They Faced: The Mondragon Family adopted their two boys. Sage, the youngest, had difficulty processing his emotions and it was spilling into his behavior in school.
How CIS-SA Helped: Ms. Salina Rocha, our CIS-SA Site Coordinator at Olmos Elementary School, provided one-on-one session with Sage to give him pointers on how to deal with his emotions in a healthy way. She worked with him to identify why he felt the way he did in situations, how to handle those feelings, and brought the information back to his parents. Through educating Sage’s family on the lessons he was learning through Communities In Schools, Sage’s family was able to understand his emotions and ways to process them.
Where He Is Now: Sage is getting along with others and thriving in his school.
