Course description: This course will review the importance of healthy social/emotional development of children 3-8 years old and the effect it has on learning outcomes.  Participants will look at basic theory, new research on brain development, and the influence of families, teachers and the community on children. Strategies will be taught to support social/emotional development in the classroom for all learners as well as address issues of truancy and suspension.  Teachers will reflect on their own learning environment, teaching styles, strengths and areas for growth with the support of a coach/mentor.  There will be at least four interactions with a coach/mentor, including a minimum of two visits to teachers' classrooms.  Coaching will include reflective dialogue and feedback, goal setting, and follow up between teacher and coach/mentor.
