Join us for SEBL Coffee Connect!

The NeMTSS team is excited to continue SEBL Coffee Connect in spring 2024. 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, Chandra Essex, Sara Gentry, Jill Guenther and Mackenzie Riedel, 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 YouTube page and in the NeMTSS media library .
