SEL Teacher

“The SEL Innovation Award for Teachers will be used to support the Agents of Change programming at Disney II Magnet school and professional development for myself and colleagues. Cooperating teachers will facilitate contemporary art making activities for the entire school population through schoolwide initiatives and grade band projects that promote SEL skills and competencies and develop a sense of belonging within the school community. The afterschool Agents of Change will support the schools’ African American students’ SEL needs and their families and will aim to strengthen their school experience through the development of SEL competencies of teachers and school staff. The Agents of Change will use contemporary art as a vehicle to build SEL competencies and create projects that are civically engaged while developing a sense of belonging.”
