Hope delivered through Emotional Intelligence (EI) enhances students’ cognitive competence giving them integrated skills needed to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges. My Best Me is a evidence based EI curriculum that can increase the social and emotional skills that will help nurture and support hope in classrooms. My Best Me material is in alignment with EI curriculum.
As educators go through the curriculum with students, there will be a greater level of goal setting, pathway development, and sense of urgency which is necessary for children to thrive both in and out of the classroom. Student participation, uninterrupted classroom instruction, and a superior learning environment are the returns on time invested in hope.
