Social Emotional Learning: Professional Development

Create a Culture of SEL

When educators are equipped with Mosaic by ACT SEL professional development (PD) curriculum, they gain common language and tools for employing SEL principles. Educators work together to create a positive school culture and climate.

Bring Social Emotional Learning Skills to Life

Our educator program includes tools, mental models, and frameworks that fit into any school, classroom type, or subject area. Through regular application, these tools enable educators to transform abstract SEL principles into practical actions that they can use every day. Mosaic by ACT Professional Development empowers teachers and administrators to become agents of change.
