SPEAK Events for Parent Education
CAIS is a member of Speakers for Parent Educators and Knowledge (SPEAK), a coalition of San Francisco K-8 schools that have joined together to enhance parent education. The group’s goal is to enrich the education and learning experience of our families, our children and our communities.
QUEEN BEES AND MASTERMINDS
Navigating Cliques, Bullying, and Social Hierarchies
Wednesday, February 8, 9:00 a.m. at
The San Francisco School, 300 Gaven Street, San Francisco
Mastering communication breakdowns with our children and navigating clique territory is no easy task, especially in the age of social media. Rosalind Wiseman will share how social group dynamics influence kids’ interactions and offer step-by-step advice on how to teach young people to treat each other with dignity.
Rosalind Wiseman, is the celebrated author of Queen Bees and Wannabees and Masterminds and Wingmen. A widely respected parenting educator and media spokesperson on bullying, ethical leadership, and the use of social media, she has been profiled in numerous publications including The New York Times and The Washington Post, and is a frequent guest on shows like Anderson Cooper 360, The Today Show, and Good Morning America. Visit Rosalind’s website.

CAIS Parent Representatives
Patricia Martell, Michelle Kemper Verplaetse, and Stephanie Reynaga serve as CAIS parent representatives for the group. SPEAK pools resources among CAIS and other member schools. Its volunteer board members (typically 2 per school) plan, organize and hold exciting and timely parent education events. Patricia Martell explains, “Usually this is a talk given by an expert in the field who has recently published a relevant book. Sometimes, it’s a panel discussion around a topic of interest or we’ll hold a screening of a relevant film.”
All SPEAK events are free for CAIS parents.
