I want to take a moment to lift up the work of Meena Srinivasan, an amazing teacher and leader here in my home town of Berkeley, California. Meena has been doing bold, effective work around mindfulness and social-emotional learning (SEL) for a number of years, helping implement SEL system wide in the Oakland Unified School District (with a sharp analysis around social context). She put out a fantastic book this year (through W. W. Norton) titled Integrating SEL with Instruction in Secondary Classrooms, and I highly recommend it. Meena’s a mom, a mentor, and she’s doing awesome work.
