My name is Ryo Sato, and I work for Higher Ground as a SEL Instructor, Child Advocate and a Rec Coach. I go to Tucson Unified School District Alternative Education Program site in the morning to teach Social Emotional Learning, Social Skills at Sunnyside School in the afternoon, and build relationships with students at our main facility during after school hours.
Something interesting about me is that I was born and raised in Tokyo, Japan and spent 19 years of my life there. This is my 10th year living in Tucson. I enjoy the food and culture here.
I strongly believe that what we do is making a huge impact to the community. Through my work, I hope that I can be a part of this community and make a positive impact with my knowledge and experiences.
