The SEL Blog

A blog for educators

Welcome to Practice Makes Perfect, a blog for educators that features lessons in developing students’ social and emotional learning (SEL) skills in the classroom. The teachers and other professionals on this blog share a commitment to gaining a deeper understanding of students’ social, emotional and academic needs and improving their practice so that they can transform students’ lives. Their posts are filled with wisdom, advice and strategies that you can use in your own classroom.

We’d like to hear from you! If you’re a teacher incorporating SEL into your classroom, and you’d like to write a post for this blog, please contact us at
