Our Philosophy

History & Mandate

The FSSTT was created in 1995 to address the needs of students experiencing behavioral and/or social and emotional difficulties.
Dr. Mounir Samy, one of the founders, summarized our mission: "FSSTT is helping the student and their families where they are, physically, emotionally and psychologically".

The team strives to develop trusting relationships between the FSSTT staff, students and their families. The FSSTT's primary goal is to build capacity in students, families and school teams.  Consultation among school professionals and educators, as well as ongoing professional development in mental health and social & emotional learning, are key aspects of the team's work  Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Diagram
