Greetings; my name is Carlton Collier and I am the SAPIS II here at Bedford Academy. As a Substance Abuse Prevention and Intervention Specialist my role is to help students with pro social development, and teen social issues. I believe that one of the best ways to help students deal with different forms of negative forms of peer pressure is to offer them positive alternatives, as well as build up their self esteem.
I will be helping students with there community service projects here in the school as well as events that would take place out of the school. Teaching students the value of service is a very important step towards helping them to become good citizens and feel connected to a community. I look forward to working with the students and parents of Bedford Academy.
