About Me

Hello! I’m Amanda Tunnell. 

I’ve been teaching since 2008 and have been working with kids for over 20 years. My passion for the development of the whole child (mind, heart, & body) compels my work with kids in and out of the classroom.

In addition to being a classroom teacher, I am also a Social Emotional Learning (SEL) coach.

SEL is the process by which humans gain knowledge of and apply skills to manage their emotions, become self aware, and establish & maintain healthy relationships.

SEL education promotes:

  • Responsible decision making
  • Healthy relationships
  • Social awareness
  • Self awareness
  • Self management skills
  • Healthy boundaries
  • Effective communication

Whether it be individual sessions or a group wellness class, we will incorporate the following curriculum throughout various components of the session(s), in addition to many more practices:

  • Mindful movement & breathing that enhances energy and awakens the body & mind
  • Social emotional skills development and hands on practice
  • “Thankful Thoughts” journaling and exercises to promote gratitude of self & others
  • Effective communication tools to use during conflict with peers, parents, siblings, and others
  • Boundaries education with social media, the internet, and peers
