I thought that new – and veteran – readers might find it interesting if I began sharing my best posts from over the years. You can see the entire collection here.

This post originally appeared in 2016:


Yesterday, I gave a presentation to the California Teachers Summit at California State University in Sacramento. Yesterday, I also uploaded my accompanying slide deck, but without narration.

Here, I’ve added my audio presentation.

My talk will eventually be posted at the California Teachers Summit YouTube Channel but I don’t know when that’s going to happen (actually, they eventually did so, and my actually presentation is embedded below the narrated slidedeck), and I’m also not sure if the video will just be me talking or if it will including the slides, too.

So, I figured getting it out today this way would be most useful to teachers, particularly as we all are planning for the upcoming school year.

Any and all feedback is welcome!

I’m adding it to The Best Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Resources.
