Online Support and Training for Teachers for a Whole Year
Week to week, step by step, online guidance and support for teachers in teaching, modeling, and integrating SEL into a classroom in minutes a day.
Are you feeling overwhelmed and stressed with students’ behavior, lack of attention, and mental health issues like anxiety and depression. Do you want to support your students in just minutes a day?
The most important part of any social emotional learning (SEL) program is the teacher–not the curriculum, however teachers can struggle with this challenge. Why is this?
Most teachers didn’t grow up with SEL in schools which they attended when they were young, and teacher education programs haven’t offered SEL training classes or information about the brain and nervous system.
Teachers usually don’t receive ongoing support and training in teaching and modeling social emotional learning, and it can be scary and uncomfortable to deal with their emotions. Teachers also don’t receive support to develop their own social emotional intelligence.
One of the most powerful places to work on mental health is in the classroom. When teachers incorporate SEL into their classrooms, behavior issues go down and attention, focus, and academic performance increase. SEL can have a profound effect on mental health, trauma, stress, equity, and academic performance.
There is a high probability that SEL in schools or classrooms will plateau or fail. I have been working with SEL in schools for 38 years. and I have learned what it takes for SEL to grow and prosper in a classroom and school.
