Educators play an essential role in students’ social-emotional development. It’s not just a 30-minute class or a single worksheet; you are teaching social-emotional learning (SEL) to your students throughout the school day. SEL is learned through their relationships in the classroom. Every day, you’re tasked with teaching students who have a wide range of academic and emotional needs, and every day, you show up for them, you support them, and you put their emotional well-being first. However, your well-being matters, too.

It’s time to focus on you and explore the relationship between self-care and resilience. During this edWebinar, you learn how to identify moments throughout your school day when you can take care of your needs and ultimately create a positive learning environment for your students.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders.
