Educators In Residence Program

KWE's Educator in Residence program: 
The Educator in Residence (EIR) program works with partner schools to embed one of KWE's Educators into a Maine school community from Thanksgiving through Patriots’ Day. The program is at no cost to the school.

In each school, the EIR uses their training in KWE's experiential approach to social-emotional learning and based on four pillars: core-curricular instruction, counseling and behavioral intervention, extracurricular activity, and faculty and staff duties. By partnering with a faculty or staff mentor, EIRs support their school in each of those four areas to help students grow into more socially and emotionally competent learners.

The EIR program is possible because of generous donors including the Shelby Cullom Davis Charitable Fund.
