    Breaking Bold: Living the Relationship Habits of Master Educators in Future Focus 

    Are the kids OK? There may be no more essential question for educators today. In a moment when mental health issues are bearing down on our students, the role of educators must expand to meet not only the academic needs but also the social and emotional needs of our students. But can we articulate clearly what SEL should look like and sound like? (Hint: it’s not a thing we do to people, it’s how we are with people.) So then how are our relationships with our children? Can we really be objective about it? (And by the way, if you’re only asking this question of adults, you won’t have the full picture.) Join Weston Kieschnick as he discusses the key relationship habits that underpin effective student learning, and how teachers and leaders can live and leverage these habits to be concrete and intentional about SEL to engage their kids, improve learning, and change lives.
