Going to School Where Your Parent Is Head: The Real Story from "Faculty Brats"
Friday, February 27, 8:00 – 9:00 AM
How do we do better support the learning of faculty children while their parents lead? What is it like to attend the school your parent heads? What are the benefits and drawbacks? What could improve this experience? What does the school need to be aware of for these kids? Join three panelists who can answer these questions and more based on their personal experiences as children of heads who attended or presently attend their parent's school.
PRESENTERS: Jodi McGary, licensed clinical social worker (MA); Bridgeman Sellers, senior at Friends’ Central School (PA); Elizabeth Suitor, junior at Wentworth Institute of Technology (MA)
