    I believe Emotional Intelligence is as important as our IQ. As a mom, I wanted my own kids to have a high EQ! As an educator, I fell the same! I loved this course and am fully on board and hope more educators believe in teaching Emotional Intelligence. If children aren’t getting this at home, it’s imperative that they get it at school. This session is FULL of helpful tips and resources to help us , as educators, teach Emotional Intelligence at school. To me, this course was invaluable!! Thank you for recognizing and emphasizing the importance of Emotional Intelligence with the research you provided!

  11. Anne – PROSPER ISD (verified owner)

    The framework she used was interesting and informative, but I wish I had access to the handout she kept talking about, because it seemed that the practical knowledge she was referring to was there rather than in the presentation, which was more general.
