Target Audience

This event is for educators responsible for character development work at their schools. The focus will be on lower and middle school work (K-8). 



In the United States, statistics continue to show that our kids are anxious, stressed, and angry. Many of these feelings are an outward display of strong inner emotions that our young people never learn to regulate. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the proactive work of building the skill and capacity in our young people to regulate and manage these feelings and emotions.  

This workshop will dive deep in discovering the power of SEL programs for our young students. Participants will have the chance to learn more about how to define SEL and SEL terms, see a comprehensive SEL curriculum in action, and practice simple tools we can use every day with our students to help them manage and regulate their own feelings and decisions.

Keynote Address:  Scarlett Lewis: Jesse Lewis Choose Love Foundation


Short Presentation:  Scott Zimmerman: What is SEL? What does it look like, sound like and feel like in a classroom?

Day 2:  

Curriculum Overview:  Scarlett Lewis

Scott Zimmerman is the Director of Social and Emotional Learning at St. Andrew’s School in Austin, Texas. Scott works with a team of teachers and administrators to coordinate and align a K-12 SEL program on two campuses. Prior to St. Andrew’s, Scott was the Coordinator of Student Leadership at The Kinkaid School in Houston, Texas, where he founded the Middle School Leadership Program and both the Middle and High School Mentoring programs.











Scarlett Lewis founded the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement after her son was murdered during the Sandy Hook tragedy in December 2012. Shortly after his death, Scarlett decided to be part of the solution to the issues that we're seeing in our society—and that also caused the tragedy. She created the Movement and became an advocate for social and emotional learning (SEL) that teaches children how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have healthy relationships.


Scarlett works to promote the Choose Love Enrichment Program, a free, comprehensive SEL program that empowers educators and their students to choose love for themselves and others. This program teaches children how to handle adversity, have courageous conversations, and to respond with love.
