This month, the Phillips Brooks School community has had the privilege of hearing from two experts on emotional intelligence at GATHER: Professor Marc Brackett, the founding director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, and our own Dr. Sarah D.

The topics covered included taking risks, barriers to creativity, how emotional intelligence helps take on challenge, the relationship of our emotions to achievement and how they can get in the way, and tools we use in the classroom that can be taken home.
