Why Get Legacy SEL Certified?

A multitude of research emphasizes the idea that the teacher is the most important determinant of student achievement beyond any other school factor, including resources and curriculum.  Our curriculum is a powerful tool, but it requires an inspired, well trained, committed, and confident instructor to maximize the learning experience for students.  It is widely known that the fidelity of implementation is vital to realizing the potential of curricular impact.  As one research team concluded, “The existing research has concluded that level of implementation is a significant predictor of student achievement gain” (String eld et al., 2000).  Since teachers dictate the quality of implementation, the following 4 tenets embody our teacher training approach: 1. Invested and Inspired Teachers, 2. High Quality Training, 3. Curriculum Personalization, and 4. Follow up supports.

Professional Development Testimonials


Dr. Trang Nguyen

Administrator, Animo College Prep Academy

"Legacy is very important to our school because several of our students come in with a lot of trauma. Throughout the course of the year we've seen a drastic change in our students. They come to school excited and constantly talk about their purpose, specifically what their goals are after high school. Our staff also talks about how students created more connectedness in their advisory. Shy students that normally don't participate are stepping up and taking leadership roles." - Dr. Nguyen A.P. at Animo College Prep Academy

"Legacy has profoundly impacted me, my colleagues, and the students I work with.  Mental health is an important topic to discuss and cover in our daily lives.  Their SEL curriculum and professional development have given me a different perspective on how I respond when dealing with stress and managing my emotions.  This is a powerful program for students and adults, and I highly recommend it."

"The Mindset Mastery SEL Curriculum has greatly benefited me and my advisory classes.  I have implemented the curriculum in my advisory classes for five years, and it worked very well.  The curriculum has benefited my students and me as well.  This is a learning experience for me as I continue to grow and strengthen my own SEL skills."
