Ways We Want our Schools to Be: Addressing the Social and Emotional Needs of Children ~ Dawn Rogers, MEd

Schools that promote Social Emotional Learning celebrate greater student academic achievement, decreased behavior problems, better attendance, and improved student attitudes. What can parents and teachers do to create a more caring community?  Where are opportunities for greater student voice?  Participants will explore practices that support social-emotional learning as they consider the 5 elements of a strong SEL school:   Self-awareness, Self-management, Social awareness, Relationship management, and Responsible decision-making.

Presenter: Dawn Rogers, MEd
