Participantes: Luis Jorge Martín Antón; Wendy Arteaga Cedeño; Juan Valdivieso Burón; Carolina Puertas Flores.

The main objective of this symposium is to present, from different perspectives, the importance and benefits of the implementation of social-emotional education and the development of social-emotional competencies in teachers at different educational levels. In the results presented in the different interventions that make up this symposium, it is highlighted that social-emotional competencies significantly favor the general well-being of teachers. Social-emotional competencies allow teachers to be able to meet the demands of their profession and to be aware of the emotional wear and tear they experience during their work. Teachers who show higher socioemotional skills manifest lower symptoms of stress, anxiety and depression. It is highlighted that teachers with high levels of socioemotional competencies show greater life and job satisfaction. Teacher well-being is the key to effective teaching and student success. Students with teachers with high levels of socioemotional competencies show significant levels of academic performance and manifest better intrapersonal and interpersonal relationships. It is also stated that socioemotional competencies in teachers should be developed through the implementation of intervention programs with clear and concrete objectives. It is emphasized that teachers should be the first recipient of socioemotional education because they should implement this training in the classroom. These findings encourage the continuation of the analysis of these variables in order to continue contrasting the results obtained and to be able to favor the general well-being of teachers during the performance of their work.
