Welcome to our Staff Social Emotional Training Page
Thank you for considering the importance of utilizing social, emotional learning in your classroom. Here, you will find the tools useful to incorporate great things into your already amazing curriculum. Picture capturing a kid sitting in your classroom that is going through a difficult time by relating your content to SEL. Imagine making the differnce in a student's life, and perhaps being the difference for that student and their ability to navigate through a diffcult time in their life. The rewards aren't always measurable, but consider if you did nothing at all, the feelings you may experience if you knew you could have made a difference. We do have that opportunity, we can make a difference, and it can be implemented in the slightest of ways, in your already powerful conversations with your students.
History teachers, could you relate current SEL struggles with historical figures and potentially change the outcomes of lives as a result? What if Abraham Lincoln would have succumbed to his turbulent struggles?
English teachers, how much could you potentially learn about your students if they had the opportunity to analyze a famous poet, or write an essay on why GRIT is important.
Business teachers, what can we learn about the failures of successful business people. What if Jeff Bezos would have believed all his haters?
THESE ARE ALL SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LESSONS!!!
We can all play a role in this very important issue, but we have to commit to making a difference. This could be as simple as 15 minutes a week or 1 day a week, it is your classroom, you are the professional, you get to determine how you use it, we just provide an avenue for resources.
Any and all of the resources you see below can be used as much or as little as you see fit in your classroom. You can have access to it all, or to one or two videos, you choose.
If you need any information at all, please reach out.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this opportunity, it is never to late to make a difference in our student's lives.
