Supporting Our Students Through COVID-19 and Beyond
Join me for my 4th Annual #MetroWestKids Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Event
It's time once again to talk about kids' mental health!
Please join me and the Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy, along with local and state experts, for a virtual event designed to promote the benefits of social emotional learning (SEL), along with examining the opportunities and challenges for implementing SEL in MetroWest and statewide.
The Rennie Center will present on how schools and communities can support students' health and wellbeing in the current moment and in the future. There will also be an educator-led panel to discuss the importance of social-emotional learning and trauma-informed practice during and after the pandemic.
This event is the fourth in a series of my#MetroWestKids initiative. As a former school committee member and social worker, I know the important role mental health plays in education.
In this moment, fighting for our young people's future means stepping up and stepping into their lives. Their success depends on their continued social emotional learning and development of skills such as self-awareness, responsible decision making, and healthy relationship building. This forum will give you the tools you need to support your child or students along the way.
