When Dr. Wayman, a lifelong educator, took over at Strawberry Mansion, it had recently been named in the news as one of the most dangerous schools in America. In less than a year, she had turned the school around using a mix of no-nonsense pragmatism and radical empathy, successfully raising test scores and literacy rates year over year, as well as fostering community with her students. Now, she's bringing her unique approach and incredible wisdom to the podcast to talk about how to reach kids that everyone else has written off, and how you can apply these lessons to hard conversations with your own kids.If you're as inspired by Principal Wayman's work as we are, you can learn more at this site: https://principalwayman.com.
