Mentor Development Session: Understanding Students’ SEL Needs

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) is important to the lives and development of children. How adults respond to young people’s behaviors has the power to affirm confidence in their cultures, well-being, learning, and themselves.

Join us on Wednesday, November 16th, 2022 from 5:30-7:00pm for a Mentor Development Session on SEL in mentoring led by Lucinda Mills, a licensed clinical social worker with the Office of Social Work in Boston Public Schools. As one of the BPS 2021 Educator of the Year recipients, she has provided countless training on trauma, stress management, social emotional learning, and de-escalation to Boston staff & students for over 20 years.
