Three Care Streams of Student Support

Most of the time our children are doing well at school. They are “in the flow.” Sometimes, though, they
experience challenges. For one reason or another they feel out of kilter with their teacher and
classmates. Their challenges may have to do with the social realm (“They’re being mean to me.”);
learning challenges (“Everyone knows how to read except me.”); or, occasionally, acting out,
misbehavior, or non-compliant behavior (“I don’t have to if I don’t want to; you can’t make me.”)
Social and emotional well-being is a prerequisite for academic success. Wasatch Charter School is
committed to providing a foundation for healthy learning by supporting those students who are
experiencing challenges. This commitment is the foundation of the curriculum and the heart of our work
at Wasatch Charter. We have adopted our Three Care Streams of Student Support process in order to
provide as much support as possible for students who are experiencing social, disciplinary, or learning
challenges. It is based on the work of Kim John Payne, who is respected worldwide for helping children,
parents, and teachers navigate challenge as well as conflict.

Spencer was born and raised in western Massachusetts and has called many places in the northeast home. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in International Economics and Foreign Languages from St. Lawrence University. At the beginning of the school year, Spencer moved west to Salt Lake City in search of higher elevation and some desert sun – and was not disappointed! Spencer is humbled and grateful to have been called home to Wasatch Charter School. With a background in teaching foreign languages, mindfulness, leadership, and social-emotional learning skills to high school students, Spencer is enjoying translating those skills to working with younger children from her role on the student support team. When she’s not at school, Spencer is coaching young alpine ski racers on the Brighton Ski Team, writing mindfulness curriculum for U.S. Ski and Snowboard, teaching yoga, and running around in the many beautiful wild spaces that Utah has to offer.
