I am very excited to start a new position as our Social Emotional Learning teacher. This is a unique position, and I will be creating the curriculum and activities as I go. I am in the process of being certified in Applied Education Neuroscience and will utilize what I am learning to foster and assist all of the students and staff at our school.
I will serve as the Social Emotional Learning teacher and work with students, staff, and families to educate them about the brain, how to regulate emotions, and the importance of social emotional learning in schools.
The Applied Educational Neuroscience certificate program is specifically designed to meet the needs of educators, social workers and counselors who work beside children and adolescents who are experiencing adversity and trauma. The certificate is intended to provide graduate and post graduate students with an opportunity to become acquainted with the theoretical and empirical literature of educational neuroscience, trauma and the brain, and brain development as it relates to behaviors, relationships, and academic acquisition.
This 9-credit hour track aligns with the Indiana Developmental Standards for educators.
The program consists of three content courses, each three credits, with the final course designed as a practicum for creating a specific project, template, or professional development within this area.
