Bennett Day School welcomes you to join in the conversation on the importance of social-emotional and executive functioning learning with Dr. Kate Bachtel of SoulSpark Learning and SENG Gifted; and Dr. Georgia Bozeday of Rush Neurobehavioral Center. Research shows that emotional intelligence and executive function (the cognitive processes that allow people to plan, organize, and regulate behavior) are responsible for as much as 50% of the variance in achievement, relationship quality, and health in all students.

Dr. Bachtel will speak to the research on student social-emotional development and what to consider when evaluating programs for social-emotional fit. Dr. Bozeday will share her expertise on executive- functioning and the importance of cultivating these important skills in children of all ages. Their talks will be followed by a Q&A discussion, joined by Martin Moran, Head of Bennett Day Upper School, who can speak to how Bennett Day’s individualized, project-based approach to education can balance these needs. Light refreshments will be served. We look forward to connecting and learning with you!

Light refreshments will be served. This event is for adults only. Learn more and get tickets here!
