Dear Parents/Guardians:

As you know, one of our district and school goals is to enhance the social and emotional development of our students, positioning all children for personal and academic success. Last week, we were extremely fortunate to have Marc A. Brackett, Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, present at Trumbull High School. This presentation was highly engaging for parents, students and staff members. Throughout the presentation, Mr. Brackett stressed the importance of developing one’s Emotional Intelligence in order to be a better student, educator and parent.

Emotional intelligence is the capacity of individuals to recognize their own, and other people’s emotions, to discriminate between different feelings and label them appropriately, and to use emotional information to guide thinking and behavior.

When you have a well-developed Emotional Intelligence, you are able to recognize your emotions, understand what they’re telling you, and realize how your emotions affect people around you. It also involves your perception of others: when you understand how they feel, this allows you to manage relationships more effectively.

Throughout the school year, we have been working as a staff to improve our own Emotional Intelligence. We have had faculty meetings to enhance our skills and to be more reflective of our emotions. Several teachers have also begun to do this work with their students as well. Many students have been practicing mindful breathing and reflecting on how emotions impact how they feel and act/react to situations. Research shows that students with higher emotional intelligence are better to manage their emotional lives, so they can focus, learn and do well in school.

A person’s Emotional Intelligence will improve as these skills are developed.

You can access one of Mr. Brackett’s presentations on Emotional Intelligence by view the YouTube video listed below:

Next year, Mrs. Platt, Mrs. Vasquez and I are looking forward to hosting informative parent sessions on Emotional Intelligence.

Questions, concerns, or positive feedback to share, feel free to contact me by emailing me at JNeumeye@trumbullps.org or by calling 203-452-4433.

 

Fondly,

Mrs. Neumeyer

Principal
