Joli Ann Leichtag utilizes the Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) classroom curriculum of Second Step to support students' healthy social-emotional development. Second Step has four main units that we teach in specific grade level classrooms (Kinder and third grade currently): skills for learning, empathy, emotional regulation, and problem solving. We attempt to expand these lessons and resources to students in other grade levels as availability becomes available. To learn more about Second Step please click on the following link:
