Hello, my name is Mr. Matthewson, I’m the social worker here at Albuquerque School of Excellence. I’ve been working with children and adolescents for the last fifteen years as a classroom teacher and counselor. One of my areas of interest is helping clients “safely” learn: to recognize, regulate, and respond to different overwhelming feelings/experiences they may be dealing with. I use a variety of different interactive techniques including: social/emotional learning, mindfulness, movement based learning and cognitive behavioral therapy.
Good mental health is critical for our students academic success. Research demonstrates that students who receive social–emotional and mental health support do better academically. Mental health is not simply the absence of mental, but also encompasses social, emotional, and behavioral health and the ability to be resilient throughout life’s challenges.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any concerns. My primary goal is to help support students, teachers, and parents navigate optimal paths for success while at Albuquerque School of Excellence.
