Leaps gives teachers a chance to remember why they became a teacher in the first place.

Leaps is an online system of resources that enable classroom teachers and counselors to identify the mental health needs of their students. The system then provides a plan with the lessons needed to address those very specific needs on an individual or group basis.

 

  • Empower teachers
