Is social emotional learning(SEL) taught on a daily basis and is mental health a priority in your school? I have supported and worked with Stan Rhodes, 2020 Rock Hill teacher of the year, over the past two years. Stan understands what it takes for SEL to succeed. Take a minute to watch this excellent, short video made by SEL4SC in South Carolina. Stan talks openly and honestly about the importance of SEL, the risks to not teaching it, why teachers are hesitant, and why administrators should prioritize SEL. Hayden Hurst Family Foundation supported Stan and other Rock Hill teachers in using my In Focus SEL curriculum and receiving SEL support from me throughout the school year.
