“Learning about ways to raise my Emotional
Quotient has changed me because now I focus
on the solution rather than the problem.”
-Legend Springs Student
I changed my self-talk and now I am more involved, ask more questions and know what to do.

E.Q. Ambassadors know how to stop gossip and prevent someone from getting hurt.
Mia – 6th Grade
Let me start off by saying, I used to HATE doing the dishes. My motto was “Doing the dishes is boring and a waste of my time.” Then I changed my motto to “Doing the dishes is necessary and helpful to my mom, since she goes to nursing school.” Why have a negative motto about something you have to do every day? We all deserve an enjoyable life, don’t we?
Emma Rogoveanu, 5th Grader!
I learned a lot from All Things E.Q. about my I/Q and my E.Q. and how I need both. It was the best!

Thank you so much for teaching us about All Things E.Q. I learned how to have eye contact. Also we are all human and we all make mistakes and have good and bad days. Last, I learned how to greet someone nicely.

Thank you for everything you taught us. It was all helpful. The thing I liked the most is when we learned how to greet someone. I can use it every day in life.

I really enjoyed All Things E.Q. The thing I liked learning about is attitude because it is something you use every day.
Angel – 6th Grader
Thank you for taking the time to help us improve our life. (All Things E.Q.) inspires sixth grade and we will pass this knowledge onto younger students. This advice will help me in every day life. From chores to school these lessons help all of us. I now know the balance between work and play and how they both are fun! I just really appreciate your help.
Joron F. – 6th Grader
One thing that I will use every day is positive self-talk.
Elyah – Student
I enjoyed learning about solutions to problems and how to be helpful to the people around me.
Adam – Student
I enjoyed learning about mottoes and handshakes. I will be using a good motto with my twin sister Ivy so I can start understanding that she is not always putting everything on my desk.
Olive – Student
I have a proper handshake and a good attitude wherever I go. I also learned how to make chores more fun.
Maddison – Student
I really enjoyed All Things E.Q. lessons. I really enjoyed the lessons on Delayed Gratification. Today I used what, I know, I will like about today when I was going to school today.
Lilly – Student
One thing I can do every day is to find a solution not a problem. I can try my hardest to know that both work and play are a part of my day. Now I can go about my life being an E.Q. Ambassador and help others.
Alyssa – 6th Grader
Student Reflections on the EQ Ambassador Program
“I’ve enjoying entertaining the kids and interacting with them. It’s really great to see their faces light up when we enter the room. In my opinion, I think that sometimes the ambassadors help kids enjoy their learning and sometimes focus better!”
“It is so cool the kids are so cute and nice I love it.”
“I have enjoyed being able to help the little kids and being the leaders of the school.”
“I have enjoyed going around to the younger students classes and helping them with their class work. It’s also fun interacting with them and listening what they have to say. ”
“I really like going down and seeing the smiles on the kids faces, and it makes me feel good by making others happy.”
“To me, the best part of being an E.Q. Ambassador is to see how the kids react to having ambassadors in their classroom.”
“I have extremely enjoyed being an E.Q. ambassador this year at Grayhawk elementary. I’ve always enjoyed seeing kids smile and laugh. Being an E.Q. ambassador has allowed me to go into classrooms and help other kids. I’m going to miss being an ambassador after 6th grade is over. This past year I’ve met so many kids and it’s so great to see them in the hallway and they wave to you with the biggest smiles on their face. I’ve learned at least one new thing from each person I’ve meet and it’s really changed me. Being an E.Q. ambassador has been a great experience for me overall.”
