Engaging Students in Conversations That Matter

"There will be times when I won't have the answers and that's ok. What matters is me staying present in the moment to help them form their questions and draw those deep connections"
Believing that "being an inspiration to children is the most progressive political act of all," Jenelle Peterson has taught in classrooms as diverse as Compton and Maui. She attended the New School for Social Research in New York City, receiving both a masters of science in teaching and a certification in secondary education. Janelle currently teaches fourth-grade social studies at Maui Preparatory Academy. Great talk.
