“Through TEL I grew my understanding of social and emotional learning (SEL)and also experienced SEL as an adult on a much deeper level than perhaps I have in my entire life just through the friendships, the holding of space and the compassion that was extended to me throughout this program this year.”

“TEL has been a breath of fresh air. And so, when I close my eyes and think about TEL, it's been the collective permission to just be.. It's a reminder of where education can be, and it's a reminder of the role that I play in that. The impact it has had on me has been reimagining leadership from a standpoint of being vulnerable, being courageous,being strong, being fair, being equitable. TEL has done a wonderful job of creating this intersectionality of all those things. I'm walking away from TEL not only with a community of 60-plus new friends, but also, resources and skills. And just a love, and a happiness to make sure that we're doing the right things for all students, all adults, and our community as a whole. I think more importantly than anything that's what TEL has done for me. It's a reminder, a reflection of taking care of all the people to ensure that all the people are well.”

“It was just an incredible experience to carve out three Wednesdays out of each month to meet with colleagues in the way that we did. And just carving out that space, it created a new structure for me to be able to learn and grow. Meeting on a weekly basis kept the work in focus. I didn't have the opportunity to close a binder, put it away, and then six months later go back to it. It was just current and ongoing.”
