Here at Gillispie, we are excited to announce our involvement in the Village Talks Consortium, a non-profit organization of local schools and centers that have come together to share new research for the betterment of our teaching, parenting, and, ultimately our children. This group’s activity is focused on bringing to San Diego a series of speakers consisting of foremost experts, researchers, and authors in the field of education and child psychology.
As a member of this consortium, we will share event hosting duties with other member schools and help to get the word out about these valuable community learning experiences. Please read on for details of this fall’s event and be sure to check the Village Talks website for information on all of the upcoming events for the 2015-16 school year.
