From Richmond Montessori School:
Steve Hughes, PhD, ABPdN, a pediatric neuropsychologist at the University of Minnesota Medical School, will speak on “Education for Life” at Richmond Montessori School on Thursday, February 9th at 6:30 PM.
Dr. Hughes speaks on education and brain development at conferences, universities, schools, and training centers all over the world. He is the Director of The Center for Research on Developmental Education and past president of the American Academy of Pediatric Neuropsychology.
About the lecture:
Education is at a crossroads. It turns out that the grades and test scores students get in school predict very little about how well people do in their careers – and hiring managers know it. The most valuable employees are those who care about what they’re doing, work naturally and spontaneously with others, anticipate obstacles and demonstrate authentic leadership. Join us to hear Dr. Hughes’ viewpoint on how educators can best prepare students for life beyond school, deep concentration, and the fundamental principles of brain development.
The event is open to the public. Tickets are available online here.
