Social and emotional learning (SEL) training is vital for educators because it gives them specific tools to support students’ emotional and social development. SEL training shows educators how to create a safe and inclusive learning environment, encourage positive behavior, and enhance students’ academic achievement. It also helps educators develop their own emotional intelligence and well-being. When the adults are emotionally intelligent and regulated, they can model these skills and teach by example. Your students may not remember all you teach, but they will certainly remember how they felt in your presence.
