Join us for a conversation about social and emotional learning, stress and the brain, and how to use this information to engage in meaningful dialogue with students, colleagues, and parents. Our hope is that you walk away feeling empowered and equipped to recognize and manage your own emotional needs, and enter into instructional opportunities (either in the classroom or through 1:1 conversations) with a more focused and sensitive approach.
This webinar will be conducted by Traci Cote, MS/CAGS School Psychologist, Yoga Teacher & Mindfulness Practitioner and Sheelu Joshi Flegal, MSW/LICSW, School Social Worker.
This webinar will take place on September 22nd at 7:30pm. Zoom details will be available once you register!
