EQ Schools: Leading the Way in Emotional Intelligence in Schools

Roni Habib is an expert in helping educators become more mindful, connected, and playful. The founder of EQ Schools, he leads workshops and speaks in schools nationally and abroad.

Early in his career, Roni struggled with the high stresses and demands of teaching even losing touch with why he wanted to be a teacher in the first place. It was so painful that he finally discovered the power of integrating mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and positive psychology in his own life as well as in his classroom and felt called to share this new approach with the world.

In the first two years of establishing EQ Schools, Roni has taught and inspired thousands of teachers through his workshops and conferences. In addition to inspiring educators through EQ Schools, Roni also teaches at Gunn High School in Palo Alto, California.

Prior to earning his Masters of Education and teaching credential at Harvard University, he lived in Israel and Belgium. Most important though, is that Roni has a huge heart and loves helping people.

"Words cannot properly express my deepest appreciation for sharing Roni’s wisdom and passion with us today. I could not have written a script for it any better and far exceeded my expectations. The response has been widespread with even some of our most resistant teachers taking part in gathering students Emotional Intelligence through play within their lessons.” Davis Stewart, Principal at Rocklin High School

“We had the honor of having Roni Habib as our keynote speaker before the school year began; his message of social-emotional wellness not only for students but for staff was the perfect beginning to our year.
