Is Social Emotional Learning a focus of your school community? Do you struggle to share the “What” and “Why” Social Emotional Learning matters with your parent community? In this hands-on workshop we focus on building home-school connections in relation to SEL. We will explore ways to connect with caregivers and introduce Social Emotional Learning to your parent community and demonstrate how SEL is relevant and beneficial for ALL students, along with the current research to support this.
