Bonus Episode: SEL Strategies with Hans Appel and Tre Gammage
I had the amazing opportunity to moderate during the Teach Better 12 Hour Live Event with two amazing educators. In this bonus episode, Hans Appel, Tre Gammage, and I discuss how to incorporate Social Emotional Learning (SEL) strategies on the campus for teachers and students.
Hans is the Director of Culture of the Teach Better Team and a member of the coveted Teach Better Speakers Network. He presents at conferences, schools, and districts all over the country. Topics include: Creating an Award Winning Culture, Amplifying Student Voice, Student-Led Podcasting, and Infusing Servant Leadership through PBIS.
In 2017 I started The Gammage Consulting Group, a family owned Education consulting firm, we help K - 12 school communities implement school-wide Social & emotional programs and practices.
Our work is meant to cultivate school community resources to bridge gaps in communication access and opportunity. My experience growing up in South Bend Indiana shaped the way I serve the world. My Mother and I moved 12 times and I went to 8 different school’s before graduating high school.

Working with GCG
We believe in Asset-based personal and professional development, an approach that puts the person first. Highlighting and identifying the talents, skills, strengths, resources, and the asset’s that currently exist to maximize the potential of your organization. Our work with educators: While SEL is emerging as a standard across the United States it’s easy to forget that adult’s need social and emotional learning skills too.
In the classroom, you teach who you are so understanding how you show up for your student’s changes the dynamic of your classroom and school community.
We deliver a systematic adult SEL with data-driven and personal results. Programs include Getting Unstuck: 4 steps to your best you, Communication keys: Delivering effective feedback, and Redirecting Student Behavior: Restorative SEL practices to use in your classroom.
Our work with student’s: We focus on the other side of the report card, developing SEL skill’s with our school-wide, and classroom SEL implementation, but also provide direct instruction and curriculum to students. College & Career exploration to prep middle & high school student’s for individual graduation plans, Leadership & Communication curriculum that explores, mindset, communication, public speaking, team building, and leadership. And Every Decision Counts: 8 lessons I wish they taught me in school, a social and emotional learning workbook for middle and high school student’s. This 55 page book is great for classroom interventions or whole group lesson study.
Our work with Parents: There’s no place like home, parent’s are the key to our children’s future. Prepare Your Child’s Education can be a keynote speech or full day training that delivers impactful storytelling, lesson’s, strategies, and skills that round out our engagement with your entire school community.
We are here to cultivate school community resources to bridge gaps in communication access and opportunity. Visit the shop or contact page to set up a complimentary conversation on how we can bridge gaps in your school community.
