The ASCD Whole Child approach defines a successful learner as one who is knowledgeable, emotionally and physically healthy, civically inspired, engaged in the arts, prepared for work and economic self-sufficiency, and ready for the world beyond formal schooling. This approach highlights the long-term development and success of children, rather than measuring success by academic achievement alone.

Using the Whole Child framework, she was able to educate, advocate, and develop educators, community stakeholders, and parents.
