Marc_Brackett_Yale_Center_for_Emotional_IntelligenceTrumbull Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Gary Cialfi, is encouraging parents and their middle and high school students, as well as members of the general public, to attend a presentation by Dr. Marc Brackett, Director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and one of the world’s leading experts on the subject.  The presentation will take place at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 20, in the Trumbull High School Auditorium.

“Dr. Brackett made a profound impression on the entire Trumbull Public Schools staff as the convocation keynote speaker in August and we’re very fortunate to have secured his time to share his insights with our parents, students, and the general public,” Cialfi said. “Clearly, we knew immediately that Trumbull students and parents would be well served with his presentation if he could be available for an evening session.”
