Chrissa Sullivan, a family consumer science teacher at Jefferson Middle School, was selected by Education First, NoVo Foundation and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors as the first teacher selected for their 2017 Social Emotional Learning Innovation Awards for Teachers. The organization received over 800 applications that were vetted through a highly competitive process. We are very proud that Ms. Sullivan was among only 12% of applicants selected, and the only teacher in Pennsylvania, to receive the award. The award was based on Ms. Sullivan's submission of a mindful eating supplemental curriculum to be instituted at JMS next year through their family consumers science courses.

The SEL Innovation Fund sought proposals from individual educators, teams of educators and district leaders seeking to improve learning environments that foster social and emotional skills in fresh, inventive or innovative ways. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) is the process of developing fundamental skills for life success within supportive, participatory learning environments. SEL skills include recognizing and managing emotions, developing caring and concern for others, establishing positive relationships and making responsible decisions. Ms. Sullivan won a grant award and will have the opportunity to present her work to and connect with a group of national SEL practitioners, experts and advocates at a meeting later this year.
