Research has shown that social-emotional learning (SEL) increases academic achievement, improves behavior, and contributes to the overall sense of well-being for students and teachers. However, we can’t teach what we don’t know. For that reason, SEL starts with adults. In order for administrators to create conditions for teachers and students to effectively engage in SEL, they themselves need to reflect on their personal SEL.
This edLeader Panel provides insights and ideas on how administrators and school leaders can support, empower, and inspire staff and students. Viewers:
- Reflect and build upon their personal SEL best practices
- Become equipped with engaging strategies to connect with staff and students
- Deepen their understanding of how SEL can strengthen and improve academics and overall well-being
This recorded edLeader Panel benefits K-12 school and district leaders as well as teachers.
