St. Mary’s 2021-2022 Parent Education Speaker Series

We are excited to announce this year’s Parent Education Series speakers. Each speaker will offer a Q&A session after their engaging presentation. All speakers were selected based on parent input and key topics relevant to our community. As life-long learners, we are looking forward to providing our parents additional education on these important topics. Please save the date for our first event.
Jessica Lahey, The Gift of Failure / Oct. 6 at 6 p.m.
Teacher, New York Times best-selling author and columnist, Jessica Lahey is inspiring audiences with her rallying cry to allow children to experience failures as an integral part of becoming successful, resilient, and self-reliant adults. Her breakthrough manifesto, The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed, has become essential reading for parents, educators, and coaches and declared a “must-read” by magazines as varied as Working Mother, Fortune, and Education Week.
