Each School Support Network Meeting in Warren County will begin with coffee and networking, table talks and then a professional development session. This month's topic is described below.
Professional Development Topic:
The Importance of Adult Social-Emotional Skills: The Foundation for a Thriving School Community
This workshop will focus on the important ways that school leaders, teachers, and staff social-emotional skills support students’ own social-emotional skills development and create a positive school climate. The discussion will include a consideration of how adults are role models for student behavior, provide examples of how teacher’s social-emotional strengths can help to create positive classroom climates and positive relationships, and how understanding staff and teacher social-emotional skills is critical for setting students up for success in academic and social-emotional domains. In addition, time will be spent exploring the positive impact strong social-emotional skills can have on the health and wellness of adults in the school community.
