SEL Leadership Cohort: The Brain and SEL

SEL Leadership Cohort: The Brain and SEL

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.

Opportunities to Connect

The SEL Leadership Cohort offers several opportunities to learn. One registration link gives you access to all cohort sessions. Those dates are:

This session on the brain and SEL, which takes place on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at 4 p.m. ET, will feature a spotlight on Dr. Andy Jacks, principal of The Nokesville School in Nokesville, Virginia, and senior fellow of the NAESP Centers for Advancing Leadership. You’ll learn how the brain functions in relation to our emotional responses to external stimuli and the way that our emotions direct our attention, energy, and actions.

Don’t miss this chance to focus on your wellness and connect with your colleagues in education.
