Transformative SEL for Educators Series

Shared from the PESB Email Newsletter - September 16, 2022

Cultivate your social emotional capacity with 'Transformative SEL for Educators' series

Join us for our professional learning series, Transformative SEL for Educators: Connecting Healthy SELves to Healthy Communities! 

PESB is hosting this virtual interactive social emotional learning (SEL) series all about developing your own SEL capacity throughout the school year. Research has shown that teachers who developed their own SEL skills not only improved their own well-being, but also improved the social, emotional and academic development of their students. Through this series, you will cultivate your identity as an educator, as well as reaffirm your purpose. The series will help you strengthen your community through self growth, inquiry, and lived experiences. 

While you may choose to attend any or all of these interactive sessions, they do build on each other, so attending the entire series is encouraged. This series is open to all educators, including ESAs, teachers, paraeducators, administrators and classified staff. Free clock hours are provided for each session through OSPI.
