Monday Matters Rethinking SEL S5 E3

By Traci Browder

Two-time teacher of the year and blogger, Traci Browder, takes us behind the curtains of her classroom giving us the secrets to disrupting the educational normalcy in this provocatively riveting podcast for educators. From new teachers to veterans to administrators, everyone walks away empowered, inspired, and ready to shatter ceilings to take students to new educational heights.

Recorded 1 week prior to its release, Traci was just returning to school after the historically catastrophic Texas Winter Storm of February, 2021. In this episode, she makes a heartfelt plea to educators to slow down and connect with students…connecting over teaching, connecting over assessing. As Traci dives deep into the conversation, her son walks into the room, and you know what that means…it’s a conversation between the mom and son duo!

Listeners get to hear a teen’s perspective of returning to school after disaster and how teachers engaged with students on their first day back.

This conversation promises to challenge your thinking, direct you to reevaluate how you connect with students, and reflect on your prioritization of instruction and social emotional needs of students.
