Powerful stories from the classroom along with research from the field of education all support the importance of belonging in the classroom. Children (and adults) engage more fully and meaningfully in the learning process and take risks when they experience authentic connections to their communities. Programming that incorporates social emotional learning practices is an important first in creating such spaces for belonging; but they are not enough. Social emotional learning pedagogy must incorporate an equity lens so that every member of the community can bring their full selves into their classrooms and school communities. This workshop is designed for educators and administrators, grades Pre-K-12th, who wish to develop and deepen their understanding of the powerful intersections of Social Emotional Learning and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging in supporting their students.


Session 1: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Social, Emotional Learning: Can one exist without the other?


Session 2: Daily moments of Intersection


Session 3: Reflection and Action Steps

She is currently the Associate Director at The Brick Church School, a preschool in New York City.  Prior to her tenure at Brick, she was a lower school principal, worked as a classroom teacher and leader in a variety of New York Independent schools, and was a founding teacher at a progressive charter school in the Bronx. Elena has presented at a number of local and national conferences, and has partnered with teachers across New York City as they work to examine the ways in which they can fully integrate equity work into early childhood curriculums. Elena is also a trainer for CRJE (formerly Border Crossers), an organization that trains and equips educators to be leaders of racial justice in their schools and communities.
