Balancing Emotional Intelligence and Academic Achievement
TeachEmotion uses EQ to change the way we think and feel!!
TeachEmotion was founded by Dr. Barbara Fatum in 2009. Dr. Fatum is a California Credentialed School Psychologist with 25+ years experience in working with students (Pre-K through Grade 12), parents, and faculty members in public, private, and international schools. Her approach is strength-based; educational programming recommendations are shaped by the student's capabilities. Dr. Fatum is available to attend I.E.P. meetings with the family, to coach the family, to work with faculty to create educational programming, and to coach the student in executive function or social skills competencies.
As Dr. Fatum is an Advanced Trainer with the Six Seconds Emotional Intelligence Network, a strong focus is placed on developing individual Emotional Intelligence (EQ) skills during coaching sessions. EQ skills are the essence of strong connections necessary for human development and form the basis of healthy growth and development for the individual or family. Dr. Fatum's research interests include the effect of EQ skills on academic achievement and using EQ skills to prepare students for standardized testing.
