Lesson One

  • Authentic learning experiences can break barriers for students and provide access. Bend the rules; break the norms; be a disruptor of traditional education.

Lesson Two

  • It takes a village. Welcome all stakeholders to the table. They all have something to contribute.

Lesson Three

  • Social-emotional wellness trumps academic performance. When students feel accepted, safe, and heard, they will thrive in all other areas.

Lesson Four

  • Don’t forget about lessons learned. We cannot go back to what was “normal” pre-covid. It’s time to create a new normal.
