  1. Laura – CONROE ISD (verified owner)

    This was for elementary teachers only

  2. LeAnn – GARFIELD RE-2 (verified owner)

    I really enjoyed all the practical ideas for classroom teachers…I think this could be used by k-8 teachers (with some tweaks for older and younger students) to help them see that the social-emotional aspect is super important to LEARNING and we want our kids to begin to talk about, think about, and learn about these aspects in elementary school and follow up in middle school so that by the time students reach high school, they know themselves pretty well and have developed resilience and an authentic growth mindset.
