All Things E.Q. brings positive energy to our school and creates future leaders on our campus. The amount of positive feedback from our students and parents for our leadership camp was impressive. I love the morning announcements that support the classroom learning and parents love the weekly communication.

This year, our school has been utilizing the All Things E.Q. program to enhance our citizenship instruction and provide our students with additional perspectives on what it means to be positive, happy, and successful. Each week, students watch a quick video which serves as a springboard for discussion about how students can create a positive learning environment for themselves and their classmates. Also, every morning, we make an announcement which serves to get students thinking about themselves and their learning environments. Here was today’s announcement:
“Don’t spend time today being unhappy about things you can’t change, like the fact that it is Monday or that you have homework. If you can’t change the situation, change the way you think about it. Instead of thinking ‘I don’t like Mondays’, find something positive about today and make sure to focus on that.”
Sometimes I think we underestimate the importance of positive thinking. When kids come to school with negative attitudes and perspectives, it can make learning (and teaching) much more challenging. At Sonoran Sky, we always want to do our best to be upbeat and positive with what we do. Thank you, All Things E.Q. for helping us with that mission.
Mr. Dawson, Principal at Sonoran Sky Elementary
“All Things E.Q. has been an incredible school-wide solution. Our culture is positive and productive and everyone is able to connect and communicate as emotionally intelligent individuals. Not only do we better serve our students, but we better serve ourselves when we use positive self-talk and have a higher E.Q.
Becoming an All Things E.Q. school was a great decision for us and I have even recommended Danna to be a keynote speaker for a meeting in our district. All Things E.Q. serves more than the students, it serves the entire organization!”
Jennifer Minor, Principal at Legend Springs Elementary
“Without a doubt, teachers and staff are seeing a daily impact as a result of the weekly mottos. The entire community is using the language from the insights.
We have seen a positive shift in our school culture from last year and we are looking forward to the continued impact year after year.”
Darlene Baumgartner, Principal at Liberty Elementary
Danna was a delightful, encouraging, and incredibly relatable speaker during our recent SEED SPOT Women’s Entrepreneurship Boot Camp. She shared insightful personal stories and offered actionable takeaways to our group regarding how to overcome self-doubt and actually enjoy the ever challenging entrepreneurial journey.
Poised and engaging, Danna seamlessly navigated an unexpected fire drill during her presentation, calming the nerves of the room and infusing humor into the entire experience!
