SEL Begins with Us: A Guide to Getting Started with Pure Edge Resources

As we recognize Self-Care Awareness Month, we highlight self-care as a foundational practice, rather than simply a single activity or special day, week, or month. Relationships are reciprocal, and so is self-care. When educators and learners share these practices, they begin to build a culture of care, together.

Social-Emotional Learning Begins with You

We want to make it as simple as possible for you to invest in your wellbeing and that of the learners you serve, so we’ve put together a quick guide for getting started. First, sign up for a  free curriculum account.
