The Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Conference is an exciting opportunity for educators, parents and professionals to learn more about one of the most important aspects in education and life: social-emotional competence. Specifically, we will be covering how to use the Social Thinking® curriculum designed by Michelle Garcia Winner to implement successful strategies for students' social growth. We are gathering in Dulles, VA to bridge gaps in our community to build positive school climates, strong support systems for students, improved social and mental health, academic enrichment, and inclusive environments for a child’s growth.

She developed an in-depth Social Thinking program, including developmentally based groups, off-site coaching and consultations, and a three-credit graduate course in partnership with Saint Michaels College. In 2011 she mentored within the Colchester School District to analyze the impact of social thinking methodologies across all tiers using a Response to Intervention (RTI) model. Similar models have been duplicated in the Winooksi and Swanton Vermont school districts.
In her spare time, Nancy enjoys cooking, traveling, reading, and taking long walks. She is also an avid sports fan. Having been happily married for 25 years, she also enjoys spending time with her husband, two grown children, her parents, and friends.
