What Makes this Course Different:
  • This SEL course is 100% unique and unlike anything you’ve learned in traditional social-emotional learning training. The content is based on the Mariposa Method, a science-backed, modern and practical approach to social-emotional learning.
  • Content includes real-life classroom scenarios that your peers have experienced, based on Jenny Barrett’s nearly three decade career working with challenging behavior in Baltimore City schools, pre and post COVID-19.
  • Everything covered is relevant and up to date as of January 2024, and is constantly being updated with new material.
  • The Mariposa Method truly works. It is not a quick fix, a series of tactics, or a way to check off the box for required training. It is a practice based on decades of research - see for yourself.

With typical SEL training, you often have to sacrifice learning hands-on techniques that will be useful in your everyday teaching practice, in favor of beginner friendly introductions to the foundations of SEL.  With this course, you get the best of both worlds.  

This is an online course designed for teachers that are new to the teaching field, as well as experienced teachers that have already taken many SEL courses before and consider themselves classroom management experts.
