Summer Training 

These trainings are provided across two days in virtual and in-person formats. They are designed for upper elementary through high school teachers to better understand instructional activities to teach assertiveness, conflict management, or self-regulation either in core content or other applicable areas such as counseling, special education, or CTE. Through these highly interactive trainings, educators will gain the knowledge and resources to apply social-emotional instructional practices. You will leave the second day with a plan for instruction.
