Join us for SEBL Coffee Connect!

The NeMTSS team is excited to continue SEBL Coffee Connect in fall 2023. This virtual event series aims to build collaboration, community, and capacity among educators and others implementing social, emotional and behavioral learning (SEBL) in Nebraska schools.

Each session will start with information from NeMTSS SEBL specialists (Emily Arkfeld, Jill Guenther, Mackenzie Riedel, Chandra Essex and Sara Gentry), and then allow time for questions and sharing from participants.

These conversations are free and open to all Nebraska educators and those working to support SEBL across the state; however, registration is required to receive the Zoom information.

We encourage you to register soon and save the dates!

Two 45-minute virtual sessions will be offered per date. Please choose the time slot that fits your schedule best:

  • 7:30 to 8:15 a.m. CST (6:30 to 7:15 a.m. MST)
  • 8:30 to 9:15 a.m. CST (7:30 to 8:15 a.m. MST)

If you miss an event, video recordings will be available in our media library and on YouTube.

SEBL Coffee Connect theme

This fall, the theme for the Coffee Connects will focus on coherence and aligning SEBL efforts. Each month, we will focus on a different area within this theme, with the hope that, by the end, participants will truly see that SEBL is not “something else” on their plate, but that it really is the plate.
