What do you get when you combine a handful of stellar teachers, a former “mean girl,” and a seventh-grader who has never missed a day of school? Some great stories, and the speaker lineup for Ignite Education Lab, our annual storytelling event.
Over the next month, each of our 10 speakers will create a speedy talk (no more than five minutes) timed to slides that advance every 15 seconds. They were chosen from about three dozen people who submitted ideas — we looked for people who could tell interesting, insightful, personal stories that surprised, delighted and moved us.
We also have two great emcees lined up for the event. They are: Nate Bowling, the 2016 Washington State Teacher of the Year and teacher at Tacoma’s Lincoln High, and Teresa Scribner, an award-winning media studies teacher at Cleveland High who brought down the house at Ignite Education Lab last year with her talk “Black Hair Matters.”
