Eastside Elementary School

I recently overheard a conversation between two students outside of my office, as I was preparing to meet with each of them for disciplinary reasons. As I listened, I heard them first speaking about the reasons each of them had been sent to see me, and then discussing how they could have prevented themselves from making the mistakes they did. One student brought up two of his favorite emotional management strategies, highlighting the ways they help him when he is angry.

Eastside Unified School District

Our middle school has transitioned to a place that is calming. The environment during the first year of MTW was rife with loud disagreements and physical altercations. Emotions were running high throughout the school yard. Now, the interactions between students [as well as between] students and adults have become more social, and being on campus has regained joy.

- James Norris , Teacher


Oquirrh Elementary School

I cannot count how many times during group and individual sessions a child would use MTW vernacular to describe what they did to manage themselves during a difficult moment!

I think that every school needs a SEL program. Similar to how every school has a standards aligned curriculum, schools need an SEL program to expand on skills and build commonality.

- Caitlin Riojas , Social Worker


Rolling Hills Engineering Academy

Move This World has given our school a common language. Staff and students begin the first moments of the morning by slowing down and connecting, allowing them to be fueled for the challenges of the day.

Lancaster High School

SEL is at the heart of what we do as educators. We are in the people business, so it is essential that we help our students to not just learn academics, but also the necessary skills to be successful in the world.

- Dr. Tonia Howard , Chief of Leadership Development and Special Programs


North Augusta Elementary School

Teaching social and emotional skills is just as important as academics to help each child be the best they can be. I am finding more and more as my teaching years increase, that many children can not handle or label their emotions correctly. As early educators, we need to teach these skills in order for the children to be in control of their emotions so that they can better handle the academic load school puts on them.

- Jackie Kowalchuk , Teacher


Napier Elementary School

Soon after the program was implemented, we began to see our students adapt. The program gave students the language and tools needed to deal with their challenges, while managing their emotional experiences.

MNPS, Stanford Montessori Elementary School

Education is shifting, at a fast pace, as the demands and responsibilities of younger students continue to increase, and technology continues to change what human interaction looks, feels, and sounds like.

- Sarah Blanchard , Teacher


Belle Plaine High School

Our students love doing the Shake Off, but they also just love the breathing pieces and so do our staff. I think that's probably something they've enjoyed the most. I'll hear comments from staff like oh, I just feel so much better. So that's amazing.

- Mindy Chevalier , Principal


Belle Plaine High School

We are PBIS district, so doing that ground work and creating a positive school culture and climate really made a huge impact on how successful we were in our implementation of Move This World. I really believe that they go hand in hand and support one another very well, allowing us to take it those steps further as far as the common language. We providee the posters and the different terminology with our full time therapist as well, so that she could use it with students and sessions. too.

- Amie Hohenstein , Student Support Specialist


Belle Plaine High School

Every student deserves the opportunity to learn, utilize and strengthen their social and emotional skills. These are life long skills that will not only improve one’s overall emotional well being but will allow you to support others around you as well.

- Amie Hohenstein , Student Support Specialist


Distinctive Schools

I often tell students that even if you’re the smartest person in the room, if you can’t work well with others and navigate through challenging situations, your knowledge and other skills won’t be used to their full potential. SEL skills are so important for our young people in becoming happy, successful and contributing members of our community.

- Sarah Gaw , SEL Coordinator


Alanson Public Schools

Over the years, as an administrator and past teacher, I have seen that our students' social & emotional needs have increased or were not being met. If these needs are not met, then the academics don’t happen. As a team, we have worked together to improve our social/emotional learning and one way is having Move This World!

- Rachelle Cook , Superintendent


Mangum Elementary School

Move This World stood out as providing lots of opportunities for the kids to take ownership of their own social emotional learning, their own decision making, their own self. It helps them become advocates for themselves and know what to do when they feel overwhelmed.

- Alex Armor , Counselor


Howard County Public Schools

This is my second training with Move This World. Once gain, I have gained a reflective perspective about myself and how I respond to situations. With others being trained we will all begin to work together towards a common good.

- Debra Washington , Teacher


Indian Head Elementary

It was evident that my students were not coming to school with the skills needed to manage their emotions. This was directly affecting the school climate. Students were struggling with behavior, teachers and parents didn’t know how to help them, everyone was frustrated and lost. Implementing a strong SEL program like Move This World helped my school community to take back control.

- Shane Blandford , Principal


Mariana Bracetti Academy

There are so many invaluable skills that SEL teaches; skills that all people need, well into adulthood, in order to thrive in life. Social skills do not come naturally to all children, so unless they are being taught different strategies for engaging in conversation with their peers, they can potentially miss out on an entire facet of their life at school: making and keeping friends.

- Emilee Strubeck , Teacher


PS 128 The Bensonhurst School

Having a strong SEL program allows us to build interpersonal and team relationships at our school in a way we would not be able to without it. We are able to provide structured, supported activities and environments for children to express, share, and process together.

- Jessica Drzewucki , Principal



With Move This World's professional development, we are able to be truthful with ourselves and with one another. These truths allow us to address some much needed struggles we all go through in a healthy way.

- Madeline Scheffler , Educator


BASIS Independent McLean

During our first week of distance learning, we shared the “3 Minutes of Happiness” activity with all of our families: toddler through grade three. One of our teachers, who is also a mom of two, shared that her family completed the 3 minute challenge together at home and felt more connected than ever. They appreciated that the activity was light-hearted and focused on positive thinking.

- Clara Gaul , Director of Toddlers-PreK


Hoboken Public Schools District

The videos do a great job at connecting the mind and body through the discussion of emotions AND the physical manifestations. The videos are also availble in Spanish!

- Katherine Escalante , Social Worker


Thomas G. Connors Elementary School

I wasn't expecting such an immediate change, but it's kind of almost happened instantly. The Emogers were huge for our kids. It was it was something that they were able to get up in practice right away.

- Ryan Sorafine , Dean of Students


McComb School District

We use Move This World in the morning time and it's a release for the children. They are able to let go of any problems and focus better on their day.
