Every Student Deserves to Feel Like a Hero
"School is the setting of some of our most pivotal moments as young people. We grow up at school and learn who we are there. School becomes imprinted in our memories. Which means–whether we like it or not–as educators, we will show up in students’ myths about how they became who they are."
In this talk, Sydney uses the framework of the Hero's Journey to reimagine our students' journeys through school, emphasizing the importance of empathy and the need to be lifelong learners in our work with young people.
