From the authors of the award-winning DESSA Comprehensive SEL System, the Educator Social-Emotional Reflection and Training (EdSERT) program provides a comprehensive set of resources developed for K-12 teachers and out-of-school time program staff designed to:
Learn why social-emotional competence is important for all members of school and OST communities.
The Educator Guides provide personal self-assessments that educators can use to understand their own SEL.
Implement self-directed practices designed to enhance competencies and ability to demonstrate them in the workplace.
Choose a focus area and set your intentions for enhancing that teaching practice.
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.
