SSN members share a bold vision: that every student will have the social-emotional intelligence to succeed in life. Since launching in 2013, members have been refining a data-informed, relationship-driven approach to solving shared challenges and improving their practices so that more students receive the support they need and deserve.
"My participation has impacted me in so many ways. Now I am an asset to the people in my program; everything I have learned here I bring back to my program, which has made me more involved."
"What do we all have in common? We want to see success for our students. SSN is about coming together with different perspectives and working collaboratively with each other; this is something that you can't get otherwise."
"SSN feels like the Justice League of educators! It's valuable to be part of a network where everyone has such a depth and strength to them when it comes to education."
"Our Continuous Improvement work gives us the opportunity to be thoughtful about our processes and our goals."
"It feels like a big non-profit family. You get to know people and really understand the improvements they are making in their organizations."
"It's an excellent opportunity to interface with other people in the space, share best practices and learn from others who have similar challenges."
