Laura Ansteatt, SEL Program Specialist
Have you ever been asked to do “just one more thing”? As a parent raising twins, I remember countless “suggestions” to help my children become more successful. In my time as a classroom teacher, I can recall countless presentations of new programs at faculty meetings and the feeling of being overwhelmed. As adults, we sometimes look at these ideas as just ONE MORE THING to add to our long list of things to do. The good news is social and emotional learning (SEL) is not about one more thing we have to do, it’s really about consciously reinforcing what most parents and educators already do for children every day.
