  • This experiential, 30-hour professional development training takes a deep dive into the five social and emotional competencies and offers educators the opportunity to become aware of, reflect upon, and set goals for their own social and emotional competence so they can be more effective in explicitly and intentionally teaching these skills to their students. Educators take the 30 hours over the course of three years, with 10 hours of professional development each academic year.
  • Participants experience a series of meaningful and positive group interactions and opportunities to reflect on themselves and their learning. These opportunities are intended to translate into increased understanding of SEL content, greater appreciation for SEL as a lever for improving student academic outcomes, an increase in efficacy to teach social and emotional skills, and a deepened awareness of the educators’ own social and emotional competence.
