Kari Prescott – Nominee, MITC 2021 Hero Award
Kari is a behavior therapist working in the School Partnership Program in Connecticut. She is always willing to help others. During the pandemic, Kari went above and beyond preparing materials for students in the program. She also accepted the responsibility of working with a student in a middle school without other Aspire staff present. She implemented all programs with fidelity and handled day to day challenges independently. She is an excellent role model for students and staff alike on how to communicate effectively and build relationships. Kari is a team player who easily assumes multiple roles, whether it’s working with students, training new staff members, or being a listening ear for others.
