The ultimate path to integrating creative social-emotional learning strategies that will transform your classroom, your students and your impact!

In this course, you will go from feeling the Daily Teacher Drain to feeling empowered and equipped with creative SEL strategies that help you make a difference in your students’ lives every day.

Tell me if this sounds like you:

➡️ You want a classroom of calm, focused students, instead of students who are dysregulated and disconnected.

➡️ You need engaged learners rather than those who refuse to work and shut down when you try to help them.

➡️ You have a love for teaching, but are actually wondering if you can do this another 5, 10 or 15 years.

➡️ You’re over the Daily Teacher Drain and want to feel energized and motivated to teach again!

➡️ You’re tired of feeling ineffective when, in reality you know you’re a good teacher.

➡️ You wish there was a way to help students with their BIG emotions that doesn’t take chunks of time away from the rest of your class or make you feel like the classroom therapist!

🌟 Great News! 🌟

SEAL Teacher Academy will give you the tools, strategies and inspiration you need to finally transform your classroom, your students and your impact without piling more on top of what you already do every day.

SEAL stands for Social-Emotional ARTISTIC Learning and it doesn’t just give you quick ideas to use, it:

Establishes creative routines that keep your classroom learning in flow!

Helps you manage classroom behaviors before they even happen! 

Prevents BIG emotions by fostering strong bonds between you and your students AND peer-to-peer!

Creates a vibrant, captivating learning space by infusing the benefits of the ARTS into your teaching toolkit.

And… it does all of this while it empowers YOU to take charge of your own well-being in the classroom and beyond!

Just look 👀 where SEAL: Social-Emotional Artistic Learning has been featured!

Kids need an outlet for expressing themselves and their emotions, and the arts are the most effective way to do that. SEAL gave me a framework that’s flexible to use with all K-12 students. Even my non-verbal autistic students participate in SEAL activities and enjoy it.

The impact of SEAL on my students’ success each year has been huge. My students and I connect on a deeper level because of the artistic learning we do. They also connect with each other, which really does create that ‘caring community of empathetic learners’ that Elizabeth talks about.

If building social-emotional competencies is a priority for your district, you won’t find a more effective way to do it than SEAL.”

Who is this right for?

Collage of teachers

New Teachers

As a new teacher, you have the opportunity to build a good foundation that will last your career. Having creative SEL strategies for your classroom will give you and your students what is needed for an impactful classroom right from the start. With SEAL Teacher Academy, you’ll get everything you need to start off strong and continue to grow as an empowered teacher.

Veteran Teachers

If you’ve been in teaching for a while, you have a lot of strategies in your back pocket, and yet you can still get stumped by some of the behaviors you’re seeing in your classroom. Having the creative SEL strategies inside SEAL not only breathes new life into your teaching, but helps you to address the issues of today’s students.

Arts Teachers

No matter what content you teach, you will find the strategies that fit your content, your teaching style, your schedule, and of course, your current students. Whether you see your students for 40 minutes a week or everyday; in a small group or a double class, SEAL’s flexible approach will fit your needs and give you the strategies that will work.

Basically, this is for you if…

☑️ You want to cultivate a safe learning environment for your students and find joy in teaching again.

☑️ You’ve searched some creative activities that promise to help your students but don’t know where to get started.

☑️ You’ve started but you’re frustrated by your already overflowing plate!

☑️ You care about your students, but you can get overwhelmed by their BIG emotions.

☑️ You want an easy, straightforward method to transform your classroom and skyrocket your impact in just the first couple weeks.

On the flip side, this is NOT for you if…

You’re looking for a magic script to read.

❌ You prefer to follow a sequence of lessons rather than adapt strategies to the students you have in front of you.

❌ You’re not interested in helping your socially and emotionally struggling students.

❌ You like to wait and see if your students’ BIG emotions will just disapate over time instead of helping them overcome challenges in the classroom.

Here’s what other teachers are saying about SEAL Teacher Academy:

“Love the flow of new ideas happening and the inner calm that is giving me strength to deal with the tough spots! It’s all coming from the work in this course!”
Stacie Greenland

Art Teacher

“This course has led me back to my true self and has given my teaching a much needed boost.”

Jennifer G

5th Grade Teacher

“SEAL is an excellent way to incorporate social emotional learning into your classroom without adding another ‘curriculum.’ It adapts to your students and your classroom environment.”

Johanna Ellis

K Teacher

How is this course different than others I’ve taken?  “It’s teacher-focused! This course gave me so many resources and ideas that I knew I could start implementing immediately.”

Martha Robichaud

Teaching Artist

Here’s my promise to YOU!

As a teacher who experiences the same struggles you do day in and day out, I promise to help you find that empowerment and inspiration you need so you can reach and teach your students through SEAL.

This course is more than just a bunch of activities to try, it’s a transformation and I want to help guide you into all things SEAL.

Your classroom will continue to grow into a place of care and creativity so that you can TEACH and your students can LEARN.

Elizabeth Peterson SEAL
How is SEAL Teacher Training different than others I have taken?  “It is SO much more personal. I don’t just mean the units we work through. You (Elizabeth) make it so much more personal. You keep in touch with each and every one of us. I don’t know how you do it but you do. I feel like we know each other. You don’t find that with other courses. I know that I can e-mail you and you will respond. I know that I can go on Facebook and there you are, in person and often live.”
Gloria Budz

Middle School Visual Arts Teacher

Want to know what teaching with SEAL looks like? 

Press play to take a peek!

I mean just imagine what your principal will see when you open the door and invite them in!  

(Really, let’s imagine it for a moment…)

 

smiling faces . . . students calming their own big emotions . . . you tending to a student with care and compassion (and patience) . . . students greeting each other . . . peers working together . . . students calmly engaging on work . . . you happy that you’re a teacher!

Well, you don’t have to imagine ANYmore!

You can BE the teacher your students NEED…

And the teacher you WANT to BE!

Praise for the SEAL Method:

“Signing up for the SEAL course was a first step…in taking a moment to strengthen myself as a teacher but also as a learner. There were moments of feeling awkward and others that felt empowering as I began to partake in activities that helped me become more aware of myself and my own “being.”

Taking the time to focus on my own well-being, putting myself in the shoes of my students and truly working to make connections, be available “in the moment” for my students and strengthen my understanding of social emotional learning has absolutely changed me and my classroom for the better.

Taking this SEAL class and focusing on PD for me – which also helps my students – has been a gift.”

Jill Mailloux

Elementary Teacher

“This course has inspired me as a teacher and an everyday person. The teacher-centered aspect, positive atmosphere, open communication, and ready to use strategies have made me feel more hopeful about teaching in this ever changing and challenging world.”
Deanne Carloni

Orchestra Teacher

Students Love SEAL Too!

COMMON QUESTIONS

Do I have to be an artist in order to teach with SEAL? I’m not sure if I’m qualified.

Utilizing the arts and creativity in your classroom is not about how skilled you are as an artist, musician, dancer or actor.  Instead, it’s about an open mind to trying new things with your students, giving them the opportunity to learn in new and engaging ways.

I'm nervous that I will be seen as a classroom therapist and I'm not qualified for that. (And I'm not sure I want that title.)

The purpose of any social-emotional learning in the classroom should be for two reasons:

1. Transitioning students into the classroom.

2. Helping them to engage and focus on their learning.

With students’ needs growing each year, it’s important that you, as their teacher, are equipped with creative strategies that will help them learn.  SEAL is not therapy, nor is it art therapy.  SEAL is also not a curriculum that you must follow or a script you must read. 

Instead, when you teach with SEAL, you are pulling from the caring, creative parts of you that got you into teaching in the first place and helping put students in a place where they can learn effectively inside the safe, learning environment you’ve created.

My school already has an SEL curriculum. Can I still use SEAL? ...and is it worth it to do both?

Yes! You can teach SEAL alongside any other SEL curriculum. (And it can stand alone as well.) The amazing thing about SEAL is that it’s about transforming how things go in your classroom.  You see, we believe that quality SEL instruction happens with the experiences you have in the classroom.

I feel I work better with a step-by-step program that tells me what to do and what to teach each week. Why don’t you provide that?

SEAL Teacher Training is about equipping and empowering you as a teacher, not telling you what to do. 

YOU know your students better than anyone: what they need and how they learn best.

This course will allow you to discover the strategies that will work for you: your style, your schedule and your students.  It will allow you to embed SEAL into your teaching.  This way, you will make more impact on your students!

Is being "Teacher-Centered" a good thing? I thought we were supposed to be student-centered.

Being student-centered is how your classroom should be.  Your PD, however, should be Teacher-Centered!  

That means the material you are learning is geared towards YOU – your needs as a person and professional.  

After 17 years of hosting workshops, courses and retreats for teachers, we have found that if your professional development is geared towards you, then you will be more likely to use the ideas, activities and lessons in your classroom.

Remember, it’s all about experiences, right?  And so, we want YOU to experience SEAL, so that you’ll bring those experiences to your students.

It goes with our motto at The Inspired Classroom: You need to GET inspired so you can BE inspiring!

How do I take the course? Is it taught live, is there homework? Give me the details please!

The course is taught completely online. All of the lessons have been pre-recorded, so you can watch them whenever (and wherever) you want!

The course is self-paced, so you can take it on your own time—and because it’s online (and nobody can see you), you don’t have to dress up for it! 

As you’re taking the course, questions will inevitably pop up. That’s when you should pop into the SEAL Teacher Community on Facebook. You’ll find the support and encouragement you need. And remember, every month I’ll have a Q&A session in there too.

Don’t forget, you’ll have LIFETIME access to the course and the community once you purchase.  Remember: #nostress

Do you accept POs?

YES!  School districts may pay with a purchase order. Simply contact our support department at support@theinspiredclassroom.com and we’ll help you arrange for that.

What if I enroll, but I can’t start or finish the course right away?

Things happen, problems arise, sometimes you just need to go on a surprise vacation.  It’s all good.  We believe in no unnecessary stress.  #nostress

That’s why you have LIFETIME access to go at your own pace.  We are here for you!

Will I receive Professional Development credit for taking this course?

Yes!  Once you complete all the course work, you will be awarded a certificate for 45 PD hours.  Please check with your school administrator to see if this certificate will be accepted.

Can I earn graduate credit for this course?

Yes!  You have the option to earn 3 graduate credits from Adams State University in Colorado.  You can add this option on when you enroll today or decide to do it later.  The investment for 3 grad credits is an additional $400.

Once you complete all the course work, you will be sent a transcript from Adams State.

I’m interested in bringing SEAL to my entire school! Is that possible?

Absolutely! SEAL is powerful inside one classroom…imagine if the whole school was on board.  All of the students and staff having creative and caring experiences, thanks to SEAL? Imagine what that would do for morale and community-building! 

(I’m trying to imagine it right now and I just keep smiling!😁)

If you’re interested in bringing SEAL to your school or district, contact our support department at support@theinspiredclassroom.com and I (Elizabeth) will get in touch with you directly.

I need help talking to my principal about this!

Maybe it’s for reimbursement.  Maybe it’s so you can get SEAL into your school.  No matter what the reason, sometimes it’s helpful to tell your administrator about the ground-breaking work you are doing!

So, I went ahead and wrote this up for you!  Feel free to copy, paste and send to your principal or whomever is in charge of your PD.

 

Dear _____,

I’ve learned about an online course that I am sure will help my students with their social-emotional learning. It’s called SEAL Teacher Training. It’s a 45 hour professional development program that’s designed to help teachers implement creative SEL strategies through the arts.

This sounds like a great opportunity! With all the work we are doing in SEL, I know learning this method of bringing in creative and artistic experiences to my students will really make a difference in my classroom.

Here’s some more information about the course:

  • SEAL stands for Social-Emotional Artistic Learning and the SEAL Teacher Training course will certify me as a SEAL teacher as I’ll be bringing this ground-breaking work into my classroom.
  • Everything inside the course can work with what we are already doing for SEL as a school.
  • The course teaches how to embed the strategies so that I’m not taking time away from other content. Instead, these SEAL strategies will help our students be focused and ready for learning.
  • There is a focus on creatively building relationships throughout the school year.
  • All the content of the course aligns with CASEL’s 5 competencies. There are even ready-made lessons that integrate each competency with all the arts.
  • There are no special materials needed to implement the activities aside from what I already have in my classroom.
  • Teachers can earn 45 professional development hours once the course is completed.
  • There’s a great community that’s included with the enrollment and every month, I can submit questions and get support as I continue to implement all the great ideas.
  • There’s even a component to the program that focuses on the well-being of the teacher! I’ll learn more about what SEL is and what my role as the teacher should be when it comes to social-emotional learning.

As you can see, this is a great opportunity! I really want to help my students develop their social-emotional skills and I know that the hands-on, artistic experiences they will have as a result of me taking this course will be great!

You can read more about the SEAL here: theinspiredclassroom.com/admin

If you have any questions, you can also email Elizabeth, who teaches the course, by emailing her here: elizabeth@theinspiredclassroom.com They do accept purchase orders as well as credit cards.

Thanks so much for considering this!

What Makes SEAL Different?

It’s NOT a Program – SEAL is built to transform your teaching, not control it.  You won’t get a binder of sequenced lessons, where you read a script and press the play button on a video.  Instead, you will learn flexible creative strategies that will fit your schedule, your style and most importantly, your students’ needs!

It’s Teacher-Centered – Sure, your classroom should be student-centered, but your professional development needs to focus on YOU!  Inside SEAL Teacher Training, you go through many artistic experiences that will help you learn the strategies first-hand so that you can implement them successfully into your classroom!

It’s Arts-Based! – In order for students to be successful in their learning, they need hands-on experiences – even with SEL. 

The ARTS are the most effective way to give students the experiences they need to build social and emotional skills in the classroom.  SEAL provides for arts integrated learning!

Proven Results for Students & Teachers – Not only has SEAL worked for my own students over the past 7 years, but time and again, teacher after teacher exclaims the benefits of becoming a SEAL Teacher!  Be sure to check out the testimonial videos below!

It’s time you took the reigns & made a change for yourself.

Elizabeth with her class!

For years, I stood in the front of my classroom and saw students’ behavior change. From outbursts, to shut downs, to confusion, to lack of focus . . . and it was taking a toll on me as the joy I felt for teaching was dwindling fast.

It was obvious: If I was going to continue to feel good about the job I was doing in the classroom, something needed to change. And that’s when I started implementing SEAL.

SEAL has allowed me and 100s of other teachers to know what it is like to finally be able to feel passionate again about teaching.

I look around and see so many teachers struggling because they don’t like the state of education and they feel powerless in their classrooms.

This can NOT be the norm and this is why SEAL is so important for you right now.

If you’re serious about making a positive impact on your students’ lives, it’s time to invest in yourself and join SEAL Teacher Academy.

Teaching shouldn’t suck the life out of you! You have the ability to transform classroom, your students and your impact.

SEAL is about reconnecting to your passion and to your students. It’s about creating a safe, creative, learning environment that you and your students want to be part of.  It’s about relishing the good days and knowing you can make it through the tough ones.

With the resources and support you get inside SEAL Teacher Academy, you can make a lasting impact on the lives of your students, and that is something that will always be worth the effort.

Most of all, you will rekindle that joy that comes with making a difference every day.

I can’t wait to help you make this happen!

~Elizabeth
