SEL Leadership Cohort: Self-Compassion

As an administrator, you lead school communities because you have a passion for it—but that passion often results in you putting your students, staff, and faculty ahead of yourself. You embed social-emotional learning (SEL) into every aspect of your students’ learning. Now, NAESP and NASSP believe it’s time for you to put the focus back on yourself and your social-emotional needs through the new SEL Leadership Cohort.

Led by Harmony-Inspire through the 2022-2023 school year, NAESP and NASSP members have the opportunity to connect with, enjoy, and empower one another through discussions, administrator spotlights, and Inspire activities. This cohort is for school leaders to check in and interact with one another, learn, and access free resources and extension activities to further support SEL in their school communities.
