To flourish means “to grow or develop in a healthy or vigorous way, especially as a result of a particularly favorable environment.”  If we want students and staff to flourish, then educational leaders need to plant the seeds, nourish the environment, and cultivate the climate for optimum growth. Research is clear that social-emotional learning (SEL) is critical for student success in school, college, work, and life. The truth is, SEL isn’t separate from academics – the two go hand-in-hand, and that is why this series is called S.E.A.L. – Social, Emotional, and Academic Learning.

In this engaging session, Dr. Joelle Hood will demonstrate how SEL needs to be modeled from all adults and integrated into all areas of the school site and district. She will share how she has brought this deep dive learning into Executive Cabinets and District Management Retreats, into multi-day sessions with teachers and counselors, and into an innovative and interactive online course to empower educators with the opportunity to strengthen their own social-emotional intelligence, well-being and resilience, and deepen their understanding of WHY these skills are so important to students and staff. Participants will engage in discussions and activities that they can immediately replicate with their staff. to initiate positive change in the lives of all stakeholders. The experiential learning is designed to help leaders have a deeper understanding of S.E.A.L. in order to provide support and guidance to their staff, as well as to infuse this mindset into site and district practices.
