This week, we have a conversation with Tim Shriver, chairman of the Special Olympics and co-founder of CASEL, the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning. Shriver shares what social and emotional learning looks like in a classroom and why he believes educators must be taught these practices.

Shriver will be the keynote speaker on Oct. 30 in Sacramento at a social and emotional learning conference co-sponsored by EdSource and the Partnership for Children and Youth. You can learn more about it and get tickets here. The conference offers an opportunity to connect with a wide range of school and district staff, policymakers, advocates and researchers.
