What is the Massachusetts
Consortium for SEL-TEd?
The Massachusetts Consortium for Social-Emotional Learning in Teacher Education (SEL-TEd) was created in the spring of 2011, as a branch of the Social-Emotional Learning Alliance of Massachusetts
(SAM). This consortium includes teacher educators from a range of programs in Massachusetts. The overarching goal of this group is to advocate for systematic integration of SEL research & practice in the state's teacher education programs -- primarily in terms of PreK-12 teacher preparation, but also including the preparation and initiation of principals, school psychologists & social workers.

[Teaching] is a very, very intense kind of work. You have to be able to relate well to a variety of students, and other adults. You have to be able to manage relationships on an ongoing basis. You have to be able to calm yourself, and be deliberative in working in situations that are very unpredictable.”
