Our guest today is Dr. Lorea Martínez. Dr. Martínez is the award-winning founder of HEART in Mind Consulting, a company dedicated to helping schools and organizations integrate Social Emotional Learning in their practices, products, and learning communities. An educator who has worked with children and adults internationally, Dr. Martínez is a faculty member at Columbia University Teachers College, educating aspiring principals in Emotional Intelligence. Her second book for educators, Teaching with the HEART in Mind, is currently ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/173606200X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_V2K8Fb0H53YQF ) available ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/173606200X/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_V2K8Fb0H53YQF ). Previously, she was a special education teacher and administrator.
In this week's episode, I sit down to talk with Dr. Lorea Martinez about her new book (out now!). We discuss the importance of living SEL instead of viewing it as simply a cognitive concept. We also talk about ways that teachers can infuse SEL into their classroom environments on a daily basis.
I have a very special giveaway in this episode so be sure to listen in for the details on how to enter the drawing.
