Our Featured Speaker 🎉
Dustin Damboise, LSW
School Social Worker, Maine School of Science and Mathematics
Dustin has a bachelors degree in social work. He has experience in school settings, outpatient social work and inpatient psychiatric social work. Dustin transitioned back into school social work recently where schools are exploring how social emotional learning can impact school culture. He is going to discuss some steps to take when evaluating this for schools and how to implement those steps to be successful in having a positive school environment.
“I want to take back to my team the different resources that are out there and find the way to include the teachers with SEL. We need to work collaboratively in order for this to be successful. It is also extremely important to have community involvement to reinforce these skills our children. Thank you for this wonderful presentation.”
“As educators, leaders we need to be mindful of the barriers. Collectively we need to implement a process (CASEL). SEL Is not alone in isolation but is imbedded throughout the curriculum. I appreciate the resources provided, funding options, SILAS & Peekapak. [The] Model class was wonderful.”
“Take away from today: learning about the successful implementation of SEL school wide with the support the the district administration, curriculum based resources and the information/resources provided through guest speakers.”
