Our guests are Dr. Bilal Polson, Assistant Principal for the Northern Parkway School on Long Island, and member of the board of governors for the Early Childhood Assembly of the National Council of Teachers of English and Veronica L. Schauder, Licensed & Certified Clinical Social Worker, School Social Worker, and former Forensic Social Worker.
