Poll: What Does Social-Emotional Learning Look Like in Your District?
I was in high school when Columbine happened. I have vivid memories of that day, as I’m sure many people do. One memory is of seeing my mom rushing into my school in the middle of the day. On my way to class, I caught a glimpse of her walking toward the guidance counselor’s office – and I remember thinking, “What’s my mom doing here?”
As it turned out, she was there because she was a family therapist and she was donating her time to the school to help counsel students and staff affected by the tragedy.
Schools have made leaps and bounds in supporting students’ social-emotional and behavioral needs since the tragedy at Columbine High School. However, implementing a framework for social-emotional learning (SEL) can still be extremely challenging for educators. What does SEL look like in your school or district? Have you run into any obstacles? Take the poll to share your thoughts.
