SELCON2024 is an opportunity for educators to collaborate and learn together about how we integrate social and emotional learning into ourselves, our students, our classrooms, and our school communities. Small breakout session workshops on a broad range of SEL topics will provide you with tangible resources and ideas to apply immediately. Compelling speakers will energize you and provide important guidance to integrating SEL into our daily lives. We also build a community of learners among participants who support each other and come back year after year. This intimate, local conference is a perfect way to dig into the essential topic of social and emotional learning. Please join us on April 19th!
