Hitting the Reset Button for 2022
December 28, 2021
reset button 2022

So many of us said goodbye to 2020 with starry-eyed hope for 2021…only to feel a sucker-punch at all that this year has offered up to us. I’ve felt the same way in many aspects.

But while 2021 wasn’t the year we had hoped, I choose to look at the positives. I want to take learnings from this year and grow from them in the new year. Hit a reset button, if you will.

This week on the podcast, I’m reflecting on four big bright spots of 2021 that have impacted society on a global scale. And I’m sharing my own three big lessons from the year. Some of these lessons we’ve already put into action at my micro-school, LEADPrep, and I’m sharing what that looks like.

I hope you’ll listen to this positive message and take some of the bright spots and learnings to heart, too!

Why Isn’t Educational Change Happening?

School change is so much harder than I thought! When I did my doctoral research on school innovation and created a hands-on learning school-within-a-school in the 90s, I had no idea that I’d spend the next few decades making tiny changes. Changes that often...

Immersive Project-Based Learning Abroad with Joann McPike
