Emotional Intelligence Lessons

Emotional Intelligence Lessons for Parents

At McAllen ISD we believe that it is everyone's responsibility to teach, exemplify, and develop these skills with our students.

  • Counselors focus on the fundamentals of social emotional learning. 

  • Teachers incorporate emotional intelligence connection in their daily lessons.

  • Campus staff include emotional intelligence messages in their daily morning announcements. 

We developed the following lessons for parents who would like to assist their child with their social emotional development. Use the link below to access the google site. On the google site click on the image to access the lesson for the appropriate level.
