b'Noticed17As a virtual school administrator, I sponsor a National BETA club and encourage 4th12th-grade students to serve local nonprofit organizations such as food pantries, Special Olympics, collecting food for first responders, and making blankets for our local childrens hospital. I also intentionally cultivate leadership development and provide space for connection during our virtual meetings and classes. Students enjoy connecting through games, such as recounting I am, I have, and I can statements. We traveled to Washington, DC, to learn ways we could reduce and alleviate human suffering; my students identified values and skills they can use to empower or support others through their leadership abilities.Dr .
