Educators' Social and Emotional Skills Vital to Learning
Jones, Stephanie M.; Bouffard, Suzanne M.; Weissbourd, Richard
Phi Delta Kappan, v94 n8 p62-65 May 2013
Teachers' social and emotional competencies are very important to their overall effectiveness, but such skills are frequently overlooked. Social and emotional competencies like managing emotions and stress are needed more today than ever before. More practices and policies to support and foster educators' social and emotional competencies are needed. Schools must overcome the false assumption that all educators naturally possess these abilities in equal measure. They don't. But, as with other competencies, they can be built through coaching and other forms of support.
