What is "SEL?"
SEL stands for social/emotional learning. Research shows that fostering strong social/emotional skills positively impacts academic performance across the disciplines. Children carry social/emotional skills with them throughout their lives to help them with self management, self-awareness, building relationships, expressing empathy and making responsible decisions.
