Florida SEL: Highlights





Thank you, Linda Gancitano and Jenna Moniz, for providing the Summer 2020 SHIFT Series to Broward County Public Schools employees and extending the invitation to other Florida school districts. Linda and Jenna also presented to the statewide Healthy Schools audience on August 4, 2020, the presentation is linked here. The Broward-based, student-led health and wellness group Mindfull Me also connected with Student Voices this summer.



Would you like to: Improve academic performance; Decrease classroom behavior; Increase focus; Improve decision-making; Enhance communication; Increase overall wellness? Martin County Health Educators developed a video (07:23) to share with students, faculty, families, and the community. The video describes the benefits of conducting Heart-Focused Breathing (a self-regulation breathing technique) and provides a demonstration to conduct it together.
Help change the world one breath at a time. Here is the link to the video: https://youtu.be/jiqCWUsy9DM
