Supporting educator growth is an essential function of Instructional Leadership. Creating conditions that foster growth requires both technical and emotional support. Learning to implement mindfulness and other social emotional learning (SEL) practices can contribute to learning environments well-suited to facilitate high levels of teaching and learning. Attuning to the emotional needs of educators leads to safer, more productive and nurturing teaching and learning experiences. In order to fully support wellness within the organization, instructional leaders must understand and be able to intentionally practice mindfulness and other SEL practices.
This session is designed for district, school, and teacher leaders who interface with school-level educators to provide instructional support, training, and leadership.
I implement social emotional learning practices to support the emotional needs and wellness of my team.
