New Faculty: Carla Davies-Vue
Help us welcome Carla Davies-Vue, Breck's new Upper School Counselor. Ms. Davies-Vue graduated with a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, an M.A. from the University of Michigan, and an M.S.W. from the University of Minnesota.
We asked the question, "Why are you passionate about teaching?" Ms. Davies-Vue said, "I am passionate about helping students feel good about themselves as learners and individuals. I am also passionate that we all need to spread kindness and help others as part of the Breck community and the larger Twin Cities community. I am motivated by my own family to create a place where everyone feels included and is valued for what they bring to the table."
She's also a Breck parent. Her son Cheng will be in third grade this year.
Outside of Breck, Ms. Davies-Vue enjoys watching professional and college hockey. She also enjoys knitting and spending time with her family at their cabin up north.
Juniors Elise P. and Jess B. share about their internship at Agape Child Development and Oasis Crisis Intervention Center (Agape/Oasis).
During Black History Month, we are featuring Black, African, and African American identifying members of the Breck School community for our Meet a Mustang interviews. This week the Meet a Mustang feature is Jaren Morton '21, who started at Breck in the fall of 2016.
A group of Breck Upper School students were recognized for their writing in the Minnesota Scholastic Arts & Writing Regional Awards. Students submitted poetry, critical and personal essays, flash fiction, and shorts stories. Congratulations to our outstanding writers!
