Target Audience

This event is for educators in the early grades, Pre-K - 3rd.



Findings from longitudinal studies continue to link the quality of a person’s early education with a variety of benefits throughout life, including higher earnings and salary, greater happiness, and lower instances of loneliness. In 2010, after his team shared findings from a longitudinal study on economic advantages of education, Harvard economist Raj Chetty made the statement, "A standout Kindergarten teacher is worth $320,000 a year." (Why are early educators so important?)

Early education is much more than teaching how to read, write, add and subtract--it’s a crucial time for the foundational development of social and emotional skills. This is when we first learn how to build relationships, problem-solve with peers, and manage our emotions. Scott Zimmerman, the Director of Social and Emotional Learning at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Austin, TX will be presenting on the power of SEL to build this healthy foundation. This workshop will dive deep into

  • How to define SEL skills, and which skills are important for our students
  • How to incorporate this skill building into our classrooms 
  • How to build a culture of SEL at your school

Educators will be introduced to a variety of SEL programs, lessons, ideas and activities, and have the opportunity to practice and share in a small group setting.
