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.  

 SELs evaluate and implement strategies to address the five core competencies of the SEL framework: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and decision making.  SELs work with families, teachers, and students with school wide, individual and small groups to support their social and emotional wellness and to help provide an equitable learning environment for everyone.  There are various ways you might see this type of support at Cotton Creek like Second Step social emotional teaching, school wide Cougar CARES coupons and behavioral expectations and targeted small group instruction to improve social skills among other things happening at the school.
