Social-emotional learning leads to fewer classroom interruptions, more time dedicated to learning, and decreased
referrals. When students are better able to self-manage and solve conflicts, they can connect better with each
other, their teachers, and with the day’s learning.
“It’s empowered teachers to handle things within their own classroom setting, without disrupting
that academic environment.”
Kara Mae, Safe Schools Counselor
“With the kids having better behavior, you’re not stopping your lessons every five seconds.
You can get a whole lesson in, then get to the fun stuff.”
Samantha Liptac, Fourth-Grade Teacher
