Dr. Michele Borba On the 7 Characteristics in Thrivers

Dr. Michele Borba is an educational psychologist whose passion for child advocacy comes from being a teacher, consultant, and parent. Through actionable, practical approaches, Dr. Borba offers guidance to help their children thrive in and outside of the classroom. Dr. Borba will be hosting the next installment of Eagle Hill’s 21-22 virtual Speaker Series on February 8, 2022, at 7 p.m. Register today!

This segment will dive deeper into Dr. Borba’s philosophies, which dispel the myth that grades, scores, and IQ are the quickest road to achievement and happiness. Instead, her "Empathy Advantage" approach ignites an understanding of what really needs to happen in order for a child to know their worth.

“Character is what builds inner strength, genuineness, and wholeness and helps turn kids who strive for the next gold ring into young adults who thrive in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. When kids are missing character strengths like optimism, curiosity, empathy, and perseverance their development is incomplete.”
