As a social worker responsible for responding to students’ social, emotional, and academic needs, Ms. Rios draws upon her deep understanding of her students’ culture and background-she herself has lived in this same South Bronx neighborhood for over 30 years.

Students, teachers, and principal alike trust her potent mixture of straight talk and unconditional care.
