Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is everywhere, and the research is clear on its effectiveness for helping students develop self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making skills.

But what about you? Do you have days that you leave your building so exhausted that even your hair hurts? Does the idea of implementing SEL into your curriculum just feel like “one more thing to do” that seems stressful and impossible?

If you feel this way at times, you are not alone!

Join Dr. Jennifer Rogers in this recording that cuts right to the reasons teachers struggle to implement SEL effectively and, more importantly – practical solutions! Based on 20 years of experience as a school counselor, researcher, administrator, coach trainer, and consultant, Dr. Rogers brings a unique, down to earth voice to the most common barriers to implementing SEL effectively in a way that resonates with every teacher. You’ll learn how to:

  • Find your “why” for implementing SEL
  • Figure out what your classroom’s needs are
  • Braid SEL interventions into what you’re already doing each day
  • Develop personalized strategies to increase social/emotional competencies for your students
  • Manage your stress more effectively so you can be more present for students, peers, and your personal life
  • Get buy-in from colleagues, administrators, and parents
  • And more!

Don’t miss this opportunity to be the “change agent” in your classroom and school – you have the power to make things better!

Includes case studies of successful individual & school-wide implementation of SEL.
