A professional development program to support the social-emotional competence and well-being of educators.
Supporting educators to strengthen their own social-emotional competence is a key component to effective social-emotional learning (SEL) for students (CASEL, 2019). Too often, educators feel unprepared or without the necessary resources to successfully deliver SEL programming. When given these tools, educators are better equipped to build stronger relationships with students, manage classroom behaviors, and deliver SEL instruction effectively (Jennings & Greenberg, 2009).
Learn why social-emotional competence is important for all members of school and OST communities.
Reflect on existing competencies and identify growth opportunities.
Implement self-directed practices designed to enhance competencies and ability to demonstrate them in the workplace.
- Jennifer Gardner, MTSS District Coordinator, Greene County Schools (NC)
EdSERT can be used as a standalone educator-focused program or as a complement to an existing SEL curriculum for students. For schools and programs using the DESSA Comprehensive SEL System, EdSERT will provide a consistent approach focusing on promoting the same 8 competencies for students and educators.
