Educator wellness

To effectively teach SEL skills, educators first need space to reflect personally and recognize their skills and opportunities for growth. Use Reflect in Staff Teams to take the temperature of your school ecosystem and ensure that educators' own needs are being met so they can invest the best of themselves in teaching.

Learning progress

Self-awareness and self-management are critical skills for life-long learning. With Reflect, students can practice asking for help and develop a growth mindset through honestly evaluating their effort, motivation, and progress.

SEL check-ins

One-on-one attention has an enormous impact on students' engagement, learning, and well-being. Make check-ins part of your routine to give each of your students a place to share their feelings and give yourself data to track their status, progress, and needs.
