Question: How can we ask Teachers to change their practice and incorporate
SEL into their classrooms while their own SEL needs are ignored?
CASEL’s research is clear. Schools are more effective at teaching and reinforcing SEL for students when they also cultivate SEL competencies in adults. This calls on schools to focus on adults’ professional growth as educators as well as their own social and emotional learning (Jones et al., 2018).
As educators, we are asked to be sensitive to the trauma our students face in the way of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). What about the adults? Many adults come complete with their own ACEs. This recognition requires us to be sensitive and supportive to the adults in the system as well.
We would love to have you join us to explore concrete ways that your school/district can provide supports that help teachers to support themselves as they promote students’ SEL competence.

Video-Recorded Virtual (Zoom) Sessions and Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Recorded Session: As an added value, all virtually-delivered programs are video recorded and accessible to our workshop registrants and Professional Learning Consortium Members subsequent to the session. Therefore, each virtually-delivered workshop and webinar will now have Zoom’s Recording Disclaimer enabled by default. With this feature, attendees will receive a notification when a recording starts or if they join a session that is already being recorded. The participant can then consent to stay in the session and be recorded or choose to leave the session altogether.
Tips to Maintain your Privacy during a Virtually-Delivered Session: Actively engaging in Zoom sessions is important. Participants may have concerns, however, of a Zoom session recording capturing their participation. Meeting hosts or instructors are taking steps to minimize this concern. In addition to the consent, participants can also use the following steps and features to take control of what is shared when a session is being recorded.
Please refer to Zoom’s Attendee Controls for more information on how to use these features.
