The Solution

Online Huddles

Caring and well-trained educators engaging with students, parents and educators to help them overcome their challenges using SEL.


Staying connected with your kids through engaging conversations isn’t always easy. You shouldn’t have to figure it out on your own. We’ll give you the tools!


We provide teachers Professional Development focused on how to integrate social-emotional learning in their classrooms with simple and fun activities that are super engaging and interactive!  PLA provides a certificate of completion for 2 credit hours and beyond.


Students are engaged in highly interactive conversations using memorable imagery, music, real-life stories and practical experiences to teach social-emotional skills in a way that is relevant & makes sense.

If you're an educator...

We invite teachers to sign-up for  Professional Development on “How To Organically Incorporate SEL in Your Classroom.”

Teachers earn 2 credits which can be applied to their annual PD requirement.

PLA offers ongoing PD focused on SEL around different grade levels.

Teachers are invited to become an SEL Coach for their own classroom and get compensated too!

They’ll be trained and then excited to lead online Parent and Student Huddles using the simple curriculum we’ve built to create awesome engagement and deeper connection.

Parent Huddles allow teachers and parents to communicate regularly and now proactively work together.

Student Huddles allow for students to connect more with their teachers outside the classroom while teachers have the opportunity to really get to know their students.

We love our teachers and we believe they should be financially rewarded for their transformative work with our youth and parents.

Teachers are paid 50% ($75) for every $150 sponsored 1 hour huddle they lead.
