We provide world-class professional development in the Responsive Classroom approach to social-emotional learning (SEL) and teaching discipline for elementary and middle school educators across the globe. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, some of our events will be offered virtually (see schedule below). We will use the Zoom platform to remain committed to helping teachers and school leaders create safe and joyful learning communities where every student can thrive. Whether you attend in-person or online professional development, you will learn how to integrate academic and social-emotional learning through key teaching practices in an experiential and informative environment.

All virtual courses will be conducted from 8:30-3:30 in the time zone indicated. For example, Eastern Standard Time courses will occur from 8:30-3:30 EST. To offer flexibility and accommodate personal schedules, individuals are welcome to attend course offerings in time zones other than their own. You can find the break down by time zone here.
