I am under the weather today, but I figured I would take this chance to share one of my favorite TED Talks. I think this talk has implications for us as educators and educational leaders as we think about our interactions with students and faculty. Our stories matter and each of us is made of multiple stories, not just one. The story of us at work or at home is not the complete story. All of our many stories mingle together to create the people we are.
So, what’s your story? And how does your story affect the educator you are? How can we, as educators, honor our students’ stories and weave them into our instruction?
