ASSET’s Mission

ASSET seeks to equip teachers with stress-reducing, resilience-boosting tools to help their students thrive.

ASSET’s Values

“SEL is a Team Sport”

We know we don’t have all the answers, which is why we want as many teachers on our team as possible. From our student toolbox to our principal toolkit many great aspects of our curriculum came from feedback from teachers. We’re excited to grow our community and collaborate with as many teachers as possible because supporting a student’s social & emotional learning requires a team.

“We create the climate”

“I’ve come to a frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element in the classroom. It’s my personal approach that creates the climate.” Haim Ginnott. We know that every student’s greatest asset is their teacher, which is why we want to emphasize that self care is never selfish care. Our goal is to help educators become their students’ best asset possible by creating a climate centered of social & emotional support.

“Be in the arena”

In one of his most famous speeches, Theodore Roosevelt says, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles…The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood…” We know implementing ASSET will come with challenges, but it is the educator that continues to show up in the arena and prioritize their students’ mental wellbeing that will change their students’ lives.

“Turn Ideas into Reality”

All teachers care about their students, and all teachers want to help their students’ social & emotional learning. At ASSET we took this passion and idea and turned it into a concrete curriculum. We provide everything you need to champion your students’ wellness in a nice, neat, ready-to-use package of  5-10-minute lessons that come with all the materials necessary for implementation.
