SEL Tip of the Week
What is SEL?
Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions (CASEL 2019).
SEL - The Wylie Way
Wylie ISD's commitment to excellence does not just begin and end in academic success for all students. As a district, we will foster social and emotional health that builds positive relationships and encourages responsible decision making.
Our Wylie Way movement and social-emotional learning support staff and students so they may flourish in these five competencies:
Self-Awareness - Knowing your strengths and limitations.
Self-Management - Being able to stay in control and persevere through challenges.
Social-Awareness - Understanding, empathizing, and communicating with others.
Relationship Skills - Being able to work in teams and resolve conflict.
Responsible Decision-Making - Being able to make ethical and safe decisions.
