Social-Emotional Learning in the Classroom: Building a Safe Environment for All Students

with Brandy Hempen


Engage in this virtual workshop for a professional development experience that will empower teachers and school leaders to use SEL, movement, and mindfulness strategies to build and cultivate an equitable learning environment for all students. Success in the classroom extends far beyond academics alone. This experiential learning session will provide participants with unique school-based management techniques and tangible,
research-based strategies to help build student self-awareness, self-regulation, interpersonal, and positive decision-making skills. Participants will learn several SEL, movement, and mindfulness activities to implement with students. By experiencing each activity, participants will feel more empowered to implement them with their students in an authentic way. Join Dr. Brandy Hempen in learning how to make your students feel safe, welcomed, and less anxious despite all the obstacles they face in today's world.
