Authenticity in the Classroom

Addressing student stress through an authenticity-focused social-emotional learning approach

This unique professional development program helps educators bring authenticity-focused social emotional learning (SEL) into their classrooms, schools, and communities. 

Participants will:

  • Acquire techniques to invite students’ full, authentic experiences into the classroom

  • Learn how to create a "Warm Welcome" to begin the school year

  • Hone the skills of self-reflection, social-emotional critical thinking, and reframing

  • Build skills in using metaphor and materials, and creative expression

  • Develop an implementation plan that connects authenticity-focused SEL to your school’s performance standards

  • Develop strategies and action plans for self-care

  • Learn how to explain and advocate for authenticity-focused SEL with your school/district leadership, peers, and parents

  • Connect with a community of like-minded educators

After the training, educators will have the opportunity to continue their training, connect with peers, and earn professional development credits and micro credentials through an exclusive online follow up program.

  • Areas of focus will include support for implementation, peer curriculum review, and self-care
