Sometimes It looks Like That is a hilarious and tender year-in-the-life of a teacher and her students at a last chance high school. Ava Llewellyn, 29, moves to San Francisco in an attempt to press the reset button on her life. But this small-town teacher is a fish out of water in her new teaching position and multicultural city. She’s unprepared for how to respond when a student’s essay declares that he wants to be the “best raper in the Bay Area,” what to do when the students she takes on a field trip shoplift most of the gift shop, and how precarious it is to fall in love with students whose lives are nothing like the rural teens she grew up with.
“Now more than ever, schools need to promote student mental health and well-being, which impacts both readiness to learn and the ability to benefit from learning opportunities. It is essential that schools focus on helping children develop the skills to cope, recover from adversity, and be prepared for challenges. Jessie Dorin has been a key element to our district work in creating environments that support the social and emotional needs of our students by recognizing the power of school connectedness. Jessie’s training provided our staff with a message of hope and specific strategies to foster safe, supportive and inclusive learning environments.”
