A new venture:


A new education venture, FuelEd, aims to improve student and teacher outcomes by developing the social and emotional competencies of America's teachers. Despite the importance of relationships to a teachers' job and student success, most teacher training focuses on teachers' content knowledge and instructional skills but neglects a critical dimension of a teacher's work: relationships. FuelEd aims to change this. Through FuelEd's unique training, teachers will increase in self-awareness, emotional wellness, and interpersonal skills— all competencies essential to engaging in high-quality relationships with students, parents, and fellow teachers. Check out FuelEd's new website to receive updates as they move towards their launch:
