SEL training and a loaner Kimochis kit, July 14, 20189:00 am – 12:00 pm
Calling all ECE teachers! A free Social Emotional Learning (SEL) opportunity for you this summer. TFA is hosting a 3-hour workshop with Kimochis, a plush toolkit designed to give children the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to recognize and manage their emotions. Through the generous support of Kimochis, TFA will provide the training at no cost and lend the full kit to you for the 2018-2019 school year.
This opportunity is open to ECE teachers (those who teach TK, PreK, Kinder + students with special needs functioning at these grades).
Spots are limited, so registration will be first-come, first-serve. We will also be sending out a brief 2-minute survey before and after the training.
