I have been in the classroom for 15 years, and this year I have transitioned to the role of counselor. I signed up for the SEL course hoping to gain some insight in my new role. I was hooked right from the beginning of Module 2. Surprisingly, after the kids were in bed, I found myself more excited about hopping on the computer for more modules than I was about binging my new favorite show. All teachers and counselors should be encouraged to complete this course because this is exactly what we missed in college. Even in graduate school, I never got coursework like the SEL course provides. It was part pep rally and part pep talk. The material had me shaking my head saying, "Yes, that is what I have been wanting to say for years!" I appreciate the hours and hours it must have taken to put this course together. I feel like the presenter was asking, "What do the educators out there really need to hear?" Thank you so much for this course! I am anxious to share my knowledge with colleagues and put it in motion in the classroom.

What is Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is an integral part of education and human development. It's the process through which all young people and adults acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, and achieve personal and collective goals. SEL helps each individual feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.*
