Middle school is a time of rapid growth and occasional uncertainty for students. Although middle schoolers face numerous challenges inside and outside the classroom, school administrators and teachers have an opportunity help students build resiliency for a successful future.

It’s hard to go anywhere in education right now without hearing the term Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). Many districts highlight SEL as a core strategic initiative. Books like Mindset and Grit dominate the international bestseller lists. And SEL concepts like growth mindset have impacted classrooms across the country.
