Sign of the Times: A Life Well Learned
In this second episode, we meet 77-year-old Dr. Sharon Silverman, a Chicago-based educator, who has dedicated her life to advocating for educational equality for children worldwide. Dr. Silverman offers insights and wisdom (needed even more now) on how to teach students who struggle. As a life-long learner, Dr. Silverman also inspires us to lead with curiosity, and adventure and to never stop learning, no matter how old you are.
