Mr. Cargo has a strong passion for cultural competency and conflict resolution techniques. He recently worked with the school psychologist to facilitate a discussion amongst Holabird staff regarding cultural competency and relationship building, and how they play a critical role in conflict resolution amongst teenage students.

One of the biggest reasons that Mr. Cargo enjoys working in the Baltimore County school setting is that he has the opportunity to connect students and families to resources that can help them to succeed not only in the classroom, but also much further on in life. He also enjoys supporting families in reinforcing social-emotional learning at home. In a short amount of time, Mr. Cargo has had the opportunity to connect and develop relationships with numerous families to provide resources and support, making a significant and positive impact in the Holabird and Norwood communities.
