There is much research suggesting that our emotional competencies predict future career success, and we already know the key role it plays in personal relationships. As a result, social emotional learning (SEL) has become an important area for students to develop in school as well as at home. As schools take on more and more of this responsibility, it’s imperative that educators themselves have the opportunity to grow in self awareness and self compassion to be ready to support students in their personal development.
Listen in to this episode to hear how Dr. Angela Brooks supported her staff around adult SEL, including the actions she took as a school leader to help staff communicate and navigate conflict with compassion. She also shares the key role that compassion, achievement, and hope play in school transformation, staff culture, and student success. You’ll also hear two things teachers can do to grow in self awareness and self compassion, even if they don’t have a school leader who has prioritized adult SEL yet.
