Within this video, we focused on the importance of prioritizing mental health within the classroom. Through the process of educational reflexivity, we were able to obtain values and objectives in regards to understanding students mentally physically and emotionally. The 5 core competencies of social-emotional learning (SEL) have been broken down into 5 core competencies.

Grade 6 teacher, Rosemary Pimentel and CYW, Michelle McDermott have provided us with the insight to what, how and why SEL is implemented within the classroom.

Our presentation consists of various strategies for students, educators and parents in order to benefit themselves and strive for success.
