EDUCATION NEWS & the Urban Assembly Host Twitter Chat on Hiring SEL-Focused Educators

Twitter Chat on Hiring SEL-Focused Educators

Trauma-informed work is critical to helping students navigate the events of recent years. Not all teachers have the capacity to teach with SEL in mind, however, and many haven’t even been formally exposed to it. We’re calling for school leaders across the country to make sure the teachers they hire are committed to developing these skills so they can:

  • Grow as educators and community members
  • Model SEL in interactions at school
  • Integrate SEL into the classroom

In this recent article, Joshua Bobrow and Brandon Frame of the Urban Assembly shared 10 questions that principals can ask potential new teachers to ensure that every space in their learning community fosters resiliency and emotional growth. Join Bobrow and Frame, along with Executive Director Maia Appleby, to discuss how principals can prioritize social-emotional learning (SEL) during the hiring process.
