When I was in elementary school, I was way more likely to be doodling or daydreaming than paying attention to class. I questioned teachers. I wanted to know the why of it all. I wanted to be seen by my teachers. Fast forward a few decades...I'm an educator now, and my goal is to really see and hear each young person I work with, and to tap into the thing(s) that fire them up! When a young person discovers their jam, there's no stopping them. I roll with it. I've had lots of success reaching kids that other adults couldn't (or wouldn't).
