Head of School Randall Dunn, in partnership with the Latin School Parent Association, is pleased to present Marc Brackett, Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence & Professor in the Child Study Center at Yale University. 

Marc's grant-funded research focuses on the role of emotional intelligence in learning, decision making, relationship quality, wellbeing, performance, and organizational climate. Marc is the lead developer of RULER, an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning that has been adopted by over 1000 public, charter, and private schools across the United States and in other countries, including Australia, England, Italy, Mexico, and Spain. RULER infuses emotional intelligence into the fabric of a school through training for school leaders, educators and staff, students, and families, and has been shown to enhance wellbeing, academic performance, and school climate.

The evening's discussion centering on regulating emotions to succeed in school is a free event open to the public. Please RSVP.
