Why Get Legacy SEL Certified?

A multitude of research emphasizes the idea that the teacher is the most important determinant of student achievement beyond any other school factor, including resources and curriculum.  Our curriculum is a powerful tool, but it requires an inspired, well trained, committed, and confident instructor to maximize the learning experience for students.  It is widely known that the fidelity of implementation is vital to realizing the potential of curricular impact.  As one research team concluded, “The existing research has concluded that level of implementation is a significant predictor of student achievement gain” (String eld et al., 2000).  Since teachers dictate the quality of implementation, the following 4 tenets embody our teacher training approach: 1. Invested and Inspired Teachers, 2. High Quality Training, 3. Curriculum Personalization, and 4. Follow up supports.

Maybe your staff, team, students, or parents are struggling with motivation, being collaborative, performance issues, lack of trust, disengagement, stress management, self-discipline, or being fixed-minded in some areas.  It happens to even the best of us, but transforming our thought, belief, and habit patterns is the only way we can achieve long-lasting results.  The days of the one-and-done ensures workshop, where you learn information without direct application, are gone!  You must measure the success of a training program by the habits it builds!  At our seminar, you directly apply these 10 habits throughout the day to meaningful and urgent goals.  You then participate in a series of routines that reinforce these habits because repetition still remains the mother of all learning!  Our one-and-done supports also ensures your group stays connected and consistent in their development until all their goals are achieved!
