Team Esteem offers a unique curriculum tailored to schools, parents or both. Our Social Emotional Learning curriculum (SEL) for professional development paired with the option for parent development is bridging the gap between schools and homes. Founder, Jamie Levine uses her experience as a Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) and trainer to use effective, evidence-based approaches to help both homes and school communities develop higher-functioning, well-adjusted kids.
Founder, Jamie Levine, M.S. Ed worked in classrooms for 20 years and recognizes the value of time for over-worked educators as well as parents  she created an actionable path forward so the team around a child can change their approach to change their results.
 
The Team Esteem approach is based on two key parts:
 
1. Understanding and working with the team around the child by learning everyone’s role, impact, and presence.
2. Understanding what supports and what erodes the child’s self-esteem. By tracking positive and negative behavioral patterns and determining their causes, Team Esteem creates strategies that leverage a child’s unique strengths to reduce socially undesirable behaviors.
