Social Emotional Learning thru mindfulness.

Welcome to Effective to Great Education, an emerging education tech startup that is using cultural trauma-informed social emotional learning and mindfulness integration to impact our most vulnerable students and underserved communities. We are a venture with a vision to see that every student succeeds. Currently, we are in the process of building a technical solution with a goal to dramatically disrupt pK-12 systemic issues and generate excellent student results for all kids.



Effective to Great Education (ETGE) is developing cultural trauma-informed Social Emotional Learning (SEL) technology tools to contribute towards a better tomorrow for schools and students. Our aim is to change how schools manage student behavioral regulation as we know it today by incorporating high quality cultural trauma-informed SEL tools and mental health education into the lives of students. Our tools are designed for education equity and social impact.


Our startup is currently doing a lot of building, planning, testing and reiteration before we officially launch. However, we are now supporting select local education organizations where at least 70% of the students are on free and reduced meals in the District of Columbia. If you are interested in partnering and would like to learn more please contact us.

Happy Student
