Kate Zinsser will be awarded a Department of Education grant entitled, “Community Partners: Chicago Public Schools (CPS), City of Chicago Mayor’s Office of Early Learning; Illinois Governor’s Office of Early Childhood Development (GOECD)

As a co-Principal Investigator on the 5 year, $3.5 million dollar grant, Kate and her team will be conducting the research and evaluation component of the partnership, testing not only global impacts of the program on teachers, students, and community organizations, but also specifically the extent to which a coaching model based on our newly validated EMOTERS tool can promote teachers' social-emotional teaching skills and children's SEL.
