EMPOWERING SCHOOLS | EMPOWERING TEACHERS | EMPOWERING LEARNERS

FRANK COYNE, FOUNDER & LEAD PARTNER, DENVER GREEN SCHOOL

Empowering Education offers teachers the support to deliver high quality SEL content to their students. It’s aligned to what we want students to achieve academically while easily supporting teachers in the social emotional growth of our students. When we say we want to educate for the “Whole Child,” EE is where the rubber meets the road for our teachers and students.

CAITLIN, TEACHER

Never before have I felt such an urgency to teach young students impulse control and to develop a ‘space’ before reaction. The Empowering Education curriculum gives me the tools to do just that.

CARI, SCHOOL PSYCHOLOGIST

Empowering Education gave us a clear guide on how to teach the skills we saw as essential for student success in school and in their community. The curriculum provides the “why” and “how” for teaching each skill, which increased teacher learning and capacity to revisit the skill in the future.
