The initiative this year is you!
We recently had the opportunity to sit down with instructional coach and podcaster, Suzanne Dailey from Teach Happier. Her timely work explores the science of positive psychology to help us better recognize and acknowledge when we are in a “hard life season,” so we can show up in better ways for the important people in our lives. Since Spring 2020, educators have been presented with many challenges related to teaching and learning through the Covid-19 pandemic while also balancing their concerns for the safety and health of themselves and their loved ones.
Educators have risen to the occasion and met these challenges with grace, ingenuity, and resourcefulness time and time again. However, the constant need for flexibility, changes to scheduling and planning, and added emotional strain can leave a person feeling less resilient and more exhausted. Join Suzanne and our OPL Team as we discuss how small shifts can provide big gifts to all of us as we try to increase our happiness both personally and professionally using rational optimism.

One of the forerunners in high-quality, evidence-based SEL is CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning). CASEL’s Framework uses five interrelated areas of competency to establish the skills, habits, and mindsets developed via SEL to foster equitable learning environments.
