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.
    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.

Success Stories

Allen Pratt

"Whole School Health Through Psychosocial Emotional Learning highlights the importance of relationships, communication, and compassion for others. It presents a critical view in supporting, training, and retaining teachers through the lens of engaging and modeling behaviors that will help our rural students be better civic leaders and community members. My favorite quote from the book gives credit to the author's upbringing and modeling from his parents: 'We must experience the world through others so we can fully engage in educating all children. My father and mother modeled to me and my siblings how to experience the world through somebody else’s eyes, especially if their outer differences stirred up discomfort or displeasure, enriching all lives involved.' I recommend all leaders, teachers, and stakeholders secure their copy as they prepare for school."
