Mentoring New Teachers, Episode 2

Mar 30, 2018

"We talk about social/emotional skills as being these so-called 'soft skills,' which drives me up a wall because they certainly are not soft in any way, shape, or form. They're foundational to anything and everything that we do."

In the second episode of our podcast series focusing on mentoring new teachers, Shawna Coppola (RENEW!) continues her conversation with kindergarten teacher Laura. In this episode, Laura talks about the challenges she faces when it comes to facilitating students’ social-emotional learning without being overwhelmed by behavior charts.  Head over to for the full writeup, transcript, and download.
