A Dialogue with School Counselors and Music Educators: Practical Insights for Supporting Students’ Social and Emotional Learning and Success in the Classroom, the Arts, and Beyond
Coming out of the worst of the pandemic, PreK-12 music educators throughout the country have reported a wide range of challenges with behavior management issues in the classroom and the need for social and emotional learning support for students. As noted by NAfME’s Professional Learning and Partnerships Committee and many others, these issues (which vary by teaching level and school context) include reacclimating students to classroom behaviors, lack of student participation, the need for a deeper understanding of trauma-informed practices, and supporting all students’ social and emotional learning and well-being.

Don’t miss this unique, interactive dialogue with experienced school counselors and music educators. During the first half of the program, experienced professionals from the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) will identify trends and issues they are seeing in the field and offer some practical insights, tools, and strategies for how music educators, in tandem with school counselors, principals, and the overall school community, can support students social and emotional learning and success in the classroom, the arts, and beyond. The second half of the program will be an interactive dialogue with the ASCA speakers and a panel of experienced music educators and some Q/A with the audience. Both music educators and school counselors are invited to participate in this program.

Presenters from the American School Counselor Association: Jill Cook, CAE and Dr. Beth Ruff
Discussion facilitators from NAfME: Johnathan Hamiel, Dr. LaSaundra Booth, and Angela Schendel Keedy
