Evan Petillo: Director of Student Well

Upon joining the ICEF team, I was wholeheartedly impressed with our ETM(Embrace the Mind) curriculum that focuses on the social emotional development of our students. This was one of the main attractions that brought me to ICEF as well as the demographic of students we serve. I bring with me multiple years of experience in education, mainly the last 6 years working as social emotional counselor in both the juvenile hall system as well as local charter schools. My goal while being here with ICEF is to expand our social emotional/mental health supports so that students are equipped with tools and strategies that effectively allow them to cope with emotional and mental challenges. When it is all said and done, I hope that I am able to say I significantly added to the growth of our students and families.
