Be the Teacher Your Students Need

Online Courses for YOU to

Confidently Integrate the Arts with Social-Emotional Learning

 

Calm Your Classroom

Ease Your Burnout

Make a Difference Every Day!

 

Students arrive to school with many social and emotional needs. Problem is, teachers lack the training it takes to help them. This leads to stressed out teachers who are on the brink of burn out.

The thing is, students deserve to get an education that is free of disruptions. And teachers should feel empowered to provide the safe, learning environment they long to teach in!

 

SEAL is the only method that empowers caring teachers, like YOU to

calm classroom behavior issues and ease teacher burnout

by embedding creative social-emotional strategies into your current content so that you can make a difference in your students’ lives every day!

Teachers are burnt out by disruptive classroom behaviors and the constant piling up of responsibilities. 

I get it!  I’m a teacher too!

I’ve spent the last 16 years empowering caring teachers with creative social-emotional strategies that proactively address these behaviors and ease teacher burnout through SEAL: Social-Emotional Artistic Learning. 

Let me share them with you!

Empower yourself to reach and teach your students through Social-Emotional Artistic Learning.  

 

Teachers are finding themselves exhausted, unfulfilled and uninspired in their classrooms.  Why?  It’s because students are coming to us with more social and emotional needs that we aren’t necessarily trained for.  

 

We are all struggling with this, and through the power of the arts, you can become empowered to reach and teach your students, making a difference every day.

It’s called SEAL.

SEAL takes the best of what arts integration is – allowing for more engaged and deep learning and integrates the various art forms into developing social and emotional skills.  

 

Just Imagine: 

  • Students become more self-aware as they meaningfully paint their breath and reflect on the techniques and colors that they used.
  • Students utilize music to help themselves to self-manage and get their work done.
  • Student build relationships when they participate in Friendly Fridays and create kind messages for their peers.
  • Students become more socially aware as they look at and examine examples of portraits and create narratives.

And this is just the beginning!

 

When you teach SEAL, you are helping your students to understand themselves better and find success within themselves.

 

You’re building relationships with your students through the arts, through SEAL.  

 

You are reaching your students in deeper ways so that you can teach them the content that is required of you.

 

And you are back in control of your classroom and able to effectively reach and teach your students.

 

Sounds good, doesn’t it?

 

We want you to find that passion for teaching again and I know you can reinspire yourself –

Let’s get you started with SEAL.
