46 How to Make Social and Emotional Learning a Priority
Making Social and Emotional Learning a Priority Is a Proactive Response to Behavior
Mary Anne and I spoke several months ago about a very important topic- social-emotional learning. Our conversation was very special to me, as Mary Anne shares her raw uncensored responses to teaching, learning, and her very first steps into the world of being a teacherpreneur. (I chose to do very little editing. Mary Anne worked very hard to move past the language barrier. But I love her sweet way of trying to figure out exactly what she wants to say. She is endearing in her raw vulnerability. I know you will find this to be true.) Mary Anne creates resources on TpT that focus on the social and emotional aspects of learning. She has a true heart for this topic, and I feel it is the perfect time to share this with you during our series on behavior.
Focusing on the importance and the value of social-emotional learning is the key to reaching children where they are and seeing the whole child. When teachers are able to see children, baggage and all, we are better equipped to handle the behavior that may be a result of deeply upsetting circumstances. Understanding kids truly makes all the difference. I hope you will join me as I speak to a very special teacher turned teacherpreneur, Mary Ann from Brighter Day Classroom.
