Youth ‘emotional intelligence’ is important too

Stettler Parent Link program highlights vital issue with excellent speaker

By Landin Chambers The Stettler Independent

A free speakers series will be coming to Stettler in mid-January on raising emotionally intelligent children.

This will be held by McMan Youth, FCSS, the Stettler Parent Link Centre and CONNECTions.

It will be on Saturday, January 13th at the Stettler Rec. Centre, and will be hosted by Jackie Eldridge.

She’s an experienced teacher, administrator, speaker and coach who aims to empower leaders to be mindful agents for change.

When not leading workshops, she’s a lecturer in the Master of Teaching program at the University of Toronto Ontario Institute for Studies in Education.

Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. that day, with the session running from 9 a.m. to noon.

Snacks and drinks will be provided, and you’re asked to pre-register by January 10th.
