SEL Teacher

Kate Smith Elementary School
Washoe County School District
Sparks, Nevada
The Best Me I Can Be! at Kate Smith Elementary School will train teachers to teach social/emotional skills using the literature of children’s author Julia Cook. In addition to professional development, “Calm Down Corners” in each classroom will be created to encourage students to use these newly-acquired SEL skills to regulate their emotions and return to a state of calm. These skills will help create a school-wide environment of successful problem solvers. Author Julia Cook will also visit the school to expand students’, teachers’, and parents’ knowledge of SEL and how to apply it in their everyday live.”
