After Holiday Reset: Tips from SEL4OH to Build Classroom Community After Winter Break
Some students and staff may welcome the opportunity to return to school after a long break. The school day can provide structure, routine, and opportunities to see friends and colleagues, but it can also be tough to make the trek back to school after a chance to spend time with family and friends. Regardless, coming back after a break gives teachers and students a chance to reset.

Consultant Corner - Adult SEL
To promote students’ social and emotional competence, it’s important for schools to foster a supportive staff environment that cultivates the social and emotional competence and capacity of the adults in the building.
"Adult SEL is the process of helping educators build their expertise and skills to lead social and emotional learning initiatives. It also involves cultivating adults’ own social and emotional competencies."
