#PEChat Radio Hour: Social and Emotional Learning

#PEChat Radio Hour: Social and Emotional Learning

These are the show notes for the first-ever #PEChat Radio Hour: a live, interactive podcast interview taking place on Twitter Spaces. In this session, I sat down with Karl Mercuri to talk about social and emotional learning. Karl and I actually taught together at the same school a few years back and I have always admired his approach to SEL learning. I was really excited to have him join us on #pechat! Let’s dive in!
