Jenelle Provencher, a second-grade teacher in Killingly, films one of her previous students receiving an award. Provencher went to schools in Killingly and didn’t know that she had PTSD from childhood abuse until she became an adult. “This is my way to advocate for children like myself,” Provencher said. She filed a complaint for the rejection of the grant that would have allowed high school students to have a free mental health clinic. Yehyun Kim / ctmirror.org
