Administrators, Teachers, and Parents agree that Social-emotional learning is just as important as academic learning. 


But teachers need more support, 75% of teachers have only had informal SEL training.


How can we expect to impact students if we aren't supporting teachers? 


SEL Educator's Implementation Guide and Adult SEL Skill-building sessions deliver the support you need to support social-emotional and academic outcomes for your school community. 

Believe SEL is just as important as academic learning 

Jaisley | 1st Year Teacher


I am a first-year teacher and these strategies are amazing. I have already implemented them in my planning and accommodated for virtual learning.

Janelle | 6th Grade Teacher 


Wow! You have great information on how to bring our students to feel stronger about themselves and become positive students and adults. 

Tiffany | 11th-year teacher


This is my 11th year of teaching and I thought I knew everything about SEL. I am so glad I participated because I learned so much and came away with some new ideas to begin this very unique year.

Melissa | Classroom Teacher 


I didn't have any courses on SEL in my teacher prep program. I find that this is my biggest weakness as a teacher. Your presentation really broke things down and was a great place to start learning more about SEL.

While momentum with SEL is impressive, there are still significant gaps in implementing school-wide SEL.


A national scan of Social-Emotional Learning and teacher preparation explores the following key findings:


  • Key Finding 1: Colleges of Education in 47 states have developed 1-3 core Teacher SEL dimensions. The only program that addressed four of the five core SEL dimensions is in the District of Columbia.
  • Key Finding 2: The promotion of student SEL is given little attention in required courses in teacher preparation programs in colleges of education in the US. 49 states did not address any of the five core Student SEL dimensions. 
  • Key Finding 6: State-level certification requires coursework that develops teacher SEL but does not address student SEL and learning context.

If we want to impact students, we have to teach teachers. For successful SEL implementation, it’s imperative to build a teacher support framework that emphasizes the development of educator social-emotional competence and understanding of students’ social-emotional learning needs

With student SEL dimensions, teacher self-awareness, and self-management absent from teacher preparation programs, it’s a must for your school community to advocate for in-service and professional development training that emphasizes school-wide Social-Emotional competence.

You should spend a school year focused on adult SEL growth before implementing your school-wide SEL plan that will emphasize the entire school community.
