Inspiring a New Generation of Champions On and Off the Field.
Classroom Champions, a leader in Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) across the U.S. and Canada is addressing the growing demand from parents, teachers, and administrators for SEL programs for children, ages 5-14.

DialogEDU will help deliver to kids online and on tablets and computers in the homes of tens of thousands of children.
The dialogEDU Founder, Debbie Schwarzberg, explained, “When visionary companies marry visionary technology – people’s lives are changed, allowing intangible traits like self-esteem, self-respect and confidence to be built. Now more than ever, children and young adults need help developing these traits. Classroom Champions’ programs are creating stronger, and more confident individuals:
We are so proud to be able to be the learning platform delivering the exceptional experiences Classroom Champions provide internationally.”
“Classroom Champions is a great example of how connecting world-class athletes with children K-8 can enrich their lives and motivate them to inspire their place as champions.

When the three of those are unified, it makes for an incredulous education experience and allows students to focus on what matters, the content.” said Kate Pereira, Classroom Champions’ School Support Manager.
