    Social Emotional Strategy of the Week from the Counseling Department


    The MTE School Counseling Department wanted to share with you some of the strategies we use with your students during our lessons. We feel that sharing these will help reinforce self awareness and emotional regulation. Students are learning to use these strategies when they are feeling uncomfortable, having big emotions, or unable to focus. Each week we will show a new strategy. We hope that providing these will give your family a toolbox of resources for you to use. Please feel free to reach out to your child's school counselor for more information.
