Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is more than enrichment—it's integral to academic success. When you invest time in educating the whole child, you're investing in a brighter future—one where students enter college and careers with empathy and the ability to manage their emotions when life happens.
In addition, when educators tend to their own social-emotional needs, they experience less stress, more job satisfaction, and a greater capacity to build relationships with students.
Our Social-Emotional Learning professional learning series covers the core tenets of SEL, offering practical techniques to create a thriving SEL program in your school or district that supports the wellness and readiness of both adults and students in your school communities to thrive.

Every interaction shapes how students see themselves and how they show up for learning. Help students develop a sense of belonging in your school community by focusing on strengths rather than deficits.
Efficacy and the Community of Care
Efficacy is strengthened when we believe our efforts, individually or collectively, are making a difference. Create a community of care that fosters individual and collective efficacy while facilitating learning.
Emotional Regulation, Communication, and Trust
Trust is the glue that holds relationships—and schools—together. Build, maintain, and repair trust with students and colleagues using educator-tested techniques for teaching emotional regulation and communication skills.
