During her last ten years working with youth and families, Ms. Sumner has connected with students in a variety of settings and taught a wide range of curriculums.She has much experience as a special educator and as a school counselor and we are so grateful to have her in our “World!” Rhiannon believes “that students learn best when they are encouraged
and supported. Meeting students where they are and adapting content to their learning style is so important for them to reach their full potential. Our world is ever changing and we must teach our students how to adapt and be resilient. Our work is to provide them the skills and tools they need to be the best version of themselves and to build positive, healthy relationships in a safe, educational setting.” Rhiannon also enjoys teaching social emotional learning and mindfulness classes and skills to students. She is thrilled to continue to support the World Academy community and our families.
