A high-powered group of elite private secondary schools has come together – as the Mastery Transcript Consortium - to transform how high school students represent themselves and their work in a competency-based, digital transcript. Tony Wagner, Expert in Residence at the Harvard Innovation Lab, endorsed the work, saying, “This new development is a game changer. You have provided extraordinarily important leadership for an effort that could well prove to be a tipping point in the transformation of education.” I was honored to facilitate the first national gathering of the membership in Baltimore in March.
What happens when a pair of seasoned high tech executives discover that preschool education positively transforms lives and is no where near as available as it deserves to be? They create the Taly Foundation, serving low income children and their families by improving access and quality in local preschools. I’m working with the Foundation on increasing the size and speed of its impact.
Transformation also happens one by one. Last year a long-time client, Kathy Petkauskos of Work Without Limits, was deservedly inducted into the Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame for her thirty years of helping people with disabilities. Watch her life-changing story in this two-minute video.
You may know that long-distance walking is a passion of mine. I recently enticed daughter Camilla away from Capitol Hill to walk the Costa Vicentina – Europe’s largest coastal natural park - in southern Portugal, along with long-time walking partner, brother George.
