This program’s mission is to integrate theory and practice to help students develop the knowledge, skills, and vision necessary to promote critical thinking and self-awareness, inspire discernment, build community, and engage as influential community members who cultivate a more inclusive and equitable world.
WILLDS is the intentional collaboration between Carmen Martinez-Tittmann, Middle School Counselor, Shannon Baldonado, Upper School Counselor, and Barb Lazar, Director of the Ford Library. These WILLDS Guides will bring transformational learning experiences to Bosque students through reflection, conscious and deliberate action, and constant vigilance—to guide students toward discovering their voices. Using this holistic approach, WILLDS fosters a school culture that is a positive, safe, healthy, nurturing, and respectful environment for all students.
WILLDS Guides will collaborate with staffulty to align with existing curricular content, leverage community partnerships, and invite external resources to design and facilitate developmentally-appropriate learning opportunities. The guides will use a variety of well-vetted educational resources for planning and instructional delivery.
