I’m thrilled to announce that I have been invited to speak at the inaugural Festival of Positive Education in Dallas, TX this summer! It’s a three-day event for educators, academics, policymakers and parents who seek to help create a new kind of education that promotes both academic achievement and character development.

An article in the April issue of Live Happy Magazine says,”IPEN Is built on a foundation of evidence that shows how developing students’ character strengths and well-being are as important as academic achievement to their future success and happiness… There is substantial evidence that students can be taught good character, positive emotion, engagement and meaning in such a way that supports and amplifies their academic studies. Implementing positive education in the schools can give young people the skills and knowledge they need to thrive in a changing world.”
I’m honored to be invited to join in this global discussion and the opportunity to connect with incredible speakers who are at the forefront of positive education. Most of all, I’m thrilled to join forces with others, who are making a difference by acknowledging and educating policymakers, parents, and educators that in order for our children to be academically successful we must also nurture character growth and EQ (emotional intelligence.)
