Schools & Districts

Facilitated Professional Learning
Tailored to Your School’s Needs

Each year IFSEL designs and leads a bespoke path of faculty professional development, leadership coaching, and consulting for a small number of schools and districts. The plan is customized for each organization’s needs, so SEL can be integrated fully into the education experience of all students, educators, and parents/caregivers.

IFSEL's experience of working with hundreds of schools and districts around the world, combined with the depth of our workshop and lesson library enables us to design and tailor a dynamic range of experiences for each school or district.

“I normally opt out of all of these and am not willing to be a part of such experiences - out of my comfort zone. I engaged in this and took huge risks and I didn’t want to and I’m so happy I did, and it was such a positive experience.”

—Sixth Grade Teacher

"The Open Session (format shared by IFSEL team) yesterday was very impactful for me. I was amazed at the openness, care, and wisdom some of our kids demonstrated and found myself holding back tears with one of the cards.  I knew where that card came from and she happened to be in my Advisory.  So I took the opportunity to process the session with them this morning.   I think for that child, it could have been life saving.  She shared how comforting it made her feel to hear all the responses."
