Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Coaching

Idea

It takes a village…

We honor the Whole Child Approach with Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) coaching that inspires a growth mindset, both in and out of the classroom.

Learning 21st-century skills goes beyond the classroom for today’s child.

The overall definition, Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.

Fulfillment
Seeker

All children are genuine fulfillment seekers with ever-growing and ever-evolving their desires by learning that life is a continual journey of self-discovery through their passions. When challenges occur, learning how never to lose that sense of fulfillment seeking and understanding their strength and resiliency are essential for their life journey. We guide adults to rediscover their passions or take their passions to the next level!

The Five Pillars for a Growth Mindset​

(and Adults too!)

Responsibility
Hero

4 pillars zeal

We redefine the meaning of responsibilities in a child's life like a superhero. Children develop the desire to take on their responsibilities with enthusiasm, joy, and excitement by understanding that having responsibilities is an extension of themselves. They also learn that responsibilities include like any superhero, that sharing is caring, and expressing that starts with ourselves, our families, our communities, and the world around us. Children also learn that appreciation plays a significant role in having responsibilities. We guide adults to develop a newfound joy and excitement for present-day responsibilities and future ones.

Choice
Maker

4 pillars happiness

We have a tiny, silent, but a wondrously impactful voice inside that guides us is life. It's a gift to all of humanity from birth. Developing a keen sense to hear that voice takes practice and learning to make choices from that impactful voice. Our choices have a rippling outcome in multiple directions of a cause and effect that far reaches beyond what we see with our five senses. We guide adults to reflect on their choice-making system.

Optimistic
Thinker

4 pillars inspiration1

Children are born optimistic thinkers at the core internal level. However, when challenges occur, it can create a space for a child’s experiences to be pushed back and their desires —learning how to become an “Optimistic Thinker” means to understand challenges that are not happening to them but rather for their personal growth. We guide adults to develop their version of an “Optimistic Thinker.”

Purpose
Pursuer

4 pillars motivation

Knowing we are designed to live a life of purpose and express the GLOWS we have inside. Every child learns that we all have our unique GLOWS. Our individuality was created by design to add to the collective global bucket of GLOWS, our comminutes, our families, and ourselves. By having the conscious thought, we are moving forward every day with the understanding that there's a purpose and to pursue that purpose is an essential internal strength which brings joy even when life doesn’t feel like a “win, win” kinda day, week, months or year. We guide adults to rediscover their purpose.

What people say?

I had the best experience with them. Sarah was very professional, really listened to my needs and matched me with awesome candidates. You could tell she really cared about finding my kids the right person. I will definitely be back to use their help again in the future!
Mrs. Sarah worked with my son on Kindergarten prep. He had a lot of trouble focusing on line and she was so good with him, getting him to focus. He really got a lot done with her. He started kindergarten with a better understanding of what was expected of him. He still ask for Mrs. Sarah all the time.
Sarah Katrina worked with us in many growth sessions. She is brilliant and more importantly, a high soul filled with awareness and consciousness.
I have known Sarah Katrina over 15 years and as a Professor in the Graduate Teacher Education Program at Nova Southeastern University and Professor in Behavioral Sciences at Broward College, Sarah Katrina has guest lectured in many of my classes teaching SEL tools!! The college students loved her and found her engaging, motivating, and innovative! I am sure that Sarah Katrina will be successful in anything she does!!!!
