SEL-rooted support to bring joy and connectedness through the transition to a new school

New online Cohort Format

This workshop series is designed for new faculty and staff at schools that already have worked with IFSEL. The workshop will introduce IFSEL’s Whole-Community Approach to SEL through a series of meaningful and creative experiences.

Participants will have the opportunity to experience a range of practices and tools that will deepen their knowledge, skills and confidence in working with students, colleagues and families.

The workshop is the ideal way for all current and prior IFSEL schools to welcome new faculty and support them through their first year at your school.
