Boost Academic Focus and Classroom Behavior with the Social Skills Toolkit

by | Oct 19, 2023 | News | 0 comments

Educators, we know you’re all about creating a school environment where students can grow and succeed academically and personally. We also know that you have a lot on your plate – and you want to be able to focus more on teaching academic content rather than playing the role of behavior manager. 

We get it, and we want to help. 

The Issue

After the rollercoaster that was the pandemic, many students are having a tough time with appropriate classroom behavior. And let’s be honest, teachers don’t have time to whip up brand-new lessons on social skills. 

But here’s the deal – if we address these behaviors early on, disciplinary action is needed less. We know counselors, administrators, and support staff are stretched thin, and teachers are often left handling behaviors they’re unprepared for. 

That’s why we created our Social Skills Toolkit. 

We’ve been in your shoes. We know the teaching workload and how it feels when behavior management takes over your day. Our team is made up of current and former teachers and administrators with years of experience in social and emotional learning (SEL) in public and alternative education.

And guess what? The Social Skills Toolkit we’ve crafted is a direct result of feedback from teachers nationwide. We know what matters to you because we asked and we listened.
