It goes without saying that 2021 has presented yet another challenging year in education. The need for a greater emphasis on the wellbeing of students, educators, and schools has exploded over the past two years. Helping young people navigate through these uncertain times and ever-changing world has created an even greater demand for Social Emotional Learning (SEL).
We want to thank each and every one of our members and partners for your unwavering dedication to supporting young people, educators, and schools – knowing what we do is making a difference is what sustains us and keeps us all moving forward!
I really appreciate all that SEL4CA does to support educators. I have made amazing contacts and I have utilized tons of the information from presentations in my trainings. This organization has definitely made a difference in children and adult lives. Sometimes we don’t always see our impact when we are out of the classroom, so I wanted you to know that your hard work and effort have made a huge difference. – SEL4CA Educator Member
I want to thank SEL4CA and my fellow members for bringing our full selves together. You push my thinking and remind me of why I do this work. It is so easy to get caught up in the minutia of day-to-day tasks but the real magic happens through collaboration. Our time talking about what is happening out there is time worth taking. Being busy is not our purpose. Changing systems that don’t work is. I am reminding myself of this going into 2022: Adjust your pace, not your purpose. – SEL4CA Community Partner Member
Wishing you all the very best of the season and New Year!
Amy and the SEL4CA Team
