Principal, Navin Elementary
At Navin Elementary, we firmly believe in the importance of teaching the whole child. In addition to academic learning, we also share a responsibility for their social-emotional learning, an important factor in predicting overall success in life. So…what IS social-emotional learning, or SEL? SEL is the process through which children understand and manage emotions (i.e. self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision-making, relationship skills and social awareness). It’s easy to see how critical the development of SEL is to addressing the needs of the whole child.
