Empower Educators for Personal and Professional Success

Empower Leaders to Create Thriving Schools

Empower Communities. Spark a Movement with Cultural Relevance

These sessions dig deep into the importance of social and emotional learning (SEL). Through the lens of 7 Mindsets, teachers gain in-depth knowledge of the four learning objectives within each Mindset, reflect on the importance of educator growth mindset, and leave with a clear understanding of how SEL can effectively be incorporated into the classroom.

The key to changing school culture begins at the top and flows through the rest of the staff and to the students. This session will equip the leadership team with a comprehensive understanding of social emotional learning that can be incorporated into all aspects of academics. The day will include classroom integration best practices, how to overcome critical challenges, and how to leverage and impact the community.

Create an action plan to impact school climate, culture and ensure deep sustainable change. This session explores how the mindsets lead to social, emotional, and cultural competence in their personal lives and in classroom. Participants learn practices that deepen relationships with parents and youth from diverse backgrounds.

PD offers that extend beyond the Classroom.
