This month, we welcome Professor Marilin Colon whose talk is "On Being Wrong: Admitting (and Even Embracing) Fallibility."

In our society — and in education, especially — people are encouraged to provide the “right” answer, and are not encouraged to focus on the process used to achieve the results. Consequently, most of us hate being wrong. This talk will examine the psychological processes at work when we make mistakes which, if explored and understood, allow us to admit when we’re wrong, and even to embrace our fallibility.

Marilin (PhD Psychology) is a professor of Psychology at Cal State University. She is in demand as a speaker, and has spoken locally at Wonderfest.

Arrive by 10:30am to enjoy some pre-assembly coffee, tea and snacks.

The Assembly starts at 11:00am sharp.


Our Kid's Activity will be: TBD

Our in-house musicians will be leading us all in some feel-good pop songs.
