Students are struggling!

The number of children ages 3 to 17 struggling with anxiety or depression rose by 1.5 million between 2016 and 2020. Educators trained in mental health and SEL will be prepared to reverse this alarming trend.

TeacherCoach can help!

From a solid foundation in mental health and SEL, faculty will learn how to apply this learning to their work in students. Your dedicated portal will have virtual engagements in these three areas.
  • SELF
    To effectively intervene with students, we explore our motivation, bias and intention. Faculty members who understand the basis for dis-ease and the core elements of growing resilience to help their students, will be rewarded.
  • STUDENT
    Developing skills for effective student intervention is grounded in psychosocial emotional learning (PSEL). Fifteen skills are designed to help student learn how to constructively meet their needs.
  • School
    Each class nurturing the well-being of students will collectively establish the norms for the school. Faculty who can embody resilience will more easily cultivate healthy classroom climates.

Amy Kennedy v2

"Whole School Health Through Psychosocial Emotional Learning is a useful guide for empowering educators to facilitate what we now know are critical elements of childhood development. At a time when so many families are reflecting on the immense value teachers and schools bring to their lives, Jared Scherz successfully connects the dots between how students learn and how they interact with the world around them. Using evidence-based descriptions of psychosocial emotional learning sprinkled with personal accounts from real-life educators, this book offers a practical roadmap for schools looking to create an integrated, engaging, and supportive environment for the next generation."
