Hey Educators, how are you doing? It has been a heck of a year! What have you done for yourself lately? Let's talk about self compassion, shall we? According to Kristen Neff, self-compassion entails being warm and understanding toward ourselves when we suffer, fail, or feel inadequate, rather than ignoring our pain or flagellating ourselves with self-criticism. We treat ourselves the way we would treat a friend who was struggling or suffering. Practicing self-compassion involves taking action and making positive changes in our lives and when we do we can reconnect with their deep motivation and excitement for helping others. In this asynchronous learning module, you will be given the tools and resources to begin exploring self compassion in your life, understand and transform habitual responses and overcome self-criticism and develop an open heart and resilience through self-appreciation The science shows that self-compassion has a significant positive impact on educator well-being, resilience, and stress management. ____________ If there is a cost associated with this training, please read payment options: *If your district is paying and you are an Oswego County district, please select Direct Bill *If your district is paying and you are outside of Oswego County, a cross contract will need to be initiated for permission to bill.

By integrating the SEL Signature Practices we provide students the opportunity to develop habits that are transferable to situations within and beyond the classroom walls.

Collaboration is messy work, sometimes. We assume we can bring people together and magical things will happen! We all know this is not always the case. In fact, it is often not the case at all. How do we begin to reflect on and grow our own emotional intelligence and that of team members so that we can move forward intentionally with our work in the interest of those we serve? Let's explore the Rumble Process. Brene Brown says, "A rumble is a discussion, conversation, or meeting defined by a commitment to lean into vulnerability, to stay curious and generous, to stick with the messy middle of problem identification and solving, to take a break and circle back when necessary, to be fearless in owning our parts, and, as psychologist Harriet Lerner teaches, to listen with the same passion with which we want to be heard." This module will offer an overview of the process and opportunities for reflection. For further support, reach out to Liane Benedict, who can facilitate your team through this process more deeply.

19. SEL Book Club for Elementary

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Instructional Classroom teacher, librarians, counselors

Dates: 11/2/2021 to 1/13/2022

As SEL becomes part of our daily practice and planning, a need for content that supports SEL direct instruction has emerged. The structure of this book study requires participants to highlight texts/titles they currently use in their classrooms that lend themselves to SEL direct instruction. As a group, we will work through strategies and practices elevating how the text provides social and emotional learning for students. Nonfiction texts are welcome as a challenge for the whole group however, fiction will likely be our focus. Fiction can serve as the perfect SEL catalyst for students as our classic story arcs often demonstrate a lead character developing or illustrating emotional resilience skills through the challenges they face. Our time together will support the classroom teacher planning lessons for SEL, the librarian hosting book talks, or the counselor providing MTSS Tier 2 and 3 interventions.

This summer journey will invite the participant to come with a journal, a pen that glides across the page and a copy of Natalie Goldberg's Writing Down the Bones. This is not just about writing practice, whether you want to be a writer or just a casual scribbler. It is also a way to view writing as study of the mind, as self-discovery and a Zen-like activity. All of this can lead to greater self-awareness, insight and resilience. We will gather on Zoom once a week for 6 weeks for 90 minutes. During this time we will discuss sections of the book Writing Down the Bones, engage in timed writing practice and read without comment or feedback. Don't be intimated by this last point - trust me, it is important. **participants must purchase their own copy of Writing Down the Bones** ____________ If there is a cost associated with this training, please read payment options: *If your district is paying and you are an Oswego County district, please select Direct Bill *If your district is paying and you are outside of Oswego County, a cross contract will need to be initiated for permission to bill.

23. Intentional Classroom Design for SEL

Program: School Improvement

Audience: Classroom teachers

Dates: 11/30/2021

As we consider our educational spaces, let's consider how the design of our spaces are conducive for social and emotional learning.
