“When it comes to social and emotional learning, it’s helpful to get information and examples from others who are doing it every day,” said Aperture Education CEO Jessica Adamson. “This webinar will connect participants with Windsor Public Schools’ SEL specialist Elyssa Kotler for an insider’s look at what she does. It offers a great opportunity for participants to obtain insight from someone in the field and also to get ideas for SEL activities they can use in their own classrooms.”
