“Class Catalyst has helped my students in a multitude of ways. I love that they get to check in with me first thing in the morning and tell me anything that might be bothering them or exciting them (big and small). This helps me gauge how the class is feeling and whom I might need to check in with before getting started on teaching. Class Catalyst has taught the students different strategies they can use when their energy level is too high or too low. I know that this program helps me in building a trusting, loving, relationship with all of my students.”

“I found the daily SEL relaxation activities very useful to my students because I would see them using the techniques they learned during the day.”
