I recently had the opportunity to travel to UCLA to hear Dr. Brene’ Brown speak. She spoke of vulnerability, shame, and hurt, but she also spoke about living fully, loving more, being courageous, and daring greatly (which, by the way, is also the name of one of her bestselling books).
As I was listening to her speak, one of the things that was on my mind was the immense pressure and joy that come from working in education. When I returned to Minnesota I spent some time looking into what she has to say about being an educator. I found a speech online that she delivered at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in 2017. In this speech she talks about the power that we, as educators, have to affect the outcomes for our students as well as the power that we have to affect outcomes for ourselves.
