SEEing to Lead

Mar 6, 2023

Lindsay Lyons is an educational justice coach who helps schools and districts co-create feminist, antiracist curricula that challenges, affirms, and inspires all students. A former NYC public school teacher, she holds a PhD in Leadership and Change, and is the founder of the blog and podcast, Time for Teachership. She believes the secret sauce of educational equity is student voice.

Key Takeaways:

  • Inaction for just causes harmful.
  • We need to go from being the sage on the stage to making content relevant to unlock students natural curiosity and passion for learning.
  • Learning in schools needs to move away from just being performance based (grades).
  • We want students to be able to take their learning outside of the classroom.
  • If we want to move education towards understanding and meaningfulness, there needs to be a stronger and ongoing connection with parents.
  • Teaching action through choices allows us to move forward without worrying about being perfect.
  • Use Glaser's BASE model to facilitate conversations.
  • Take your time with difficult topics to make sure you can speak to them properly.
