SOCIAL EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE (SEE) COMMITTEE
The SEE Committee was created as a sub-committee of the SLT to support and strengthen the social emotional experiences of our children, teachers, parents and the community at PS 154. Social Emotional Learning is intended to teach children specific social-emotional skills like self-awareness, self-management, empathy, perspective taking and cooperation. In short, these are the lessons of emotional intelligence, which science has consistently shown is a greater determinant of success and happiness than IQ or academic ability.
The research behind the academic success of students immersed in social emotional learning demonstrates the importance of these experiences for our children.
The SEE Committee aims to bring social emotional learning skills to the PS 154 community through various programs including parenting skills workshops and professional development.
