Wouldn’t it be nice if a high school student had the chance to pursue exactly what interests them? What if they made a plan for executing it and could fund it? What if this was happening in our own, Hazen community? What an opportunity! Surprise; this is exactly what I am doing this year with my PLP, and I wanted to share a really amazing experience I had recently.
But, this experience would not be worthwhile if I did not share it with the community back home. The Hazen Communicating School Redesign Team – a group comprised of Russell Shopland, Clara Lew-Smith, Rylan O’Connell, Allie O’Hara, and Chris Miller, who are working in youth-adult partnership to make change – has planned and prepared to bring some of this enlightening information back to the students. We hope to increase student understanding of the way the brain learns so that they can make informed decisions about their education and life. Stay Tuned!
