Sign of the Times: A Life Well Learned

December 14, 2021

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.

Always embrace the opportunity to learn because it makes your life far more exciting. My life, at this age, is far richer and fuller because of the experiences I have had throughout my life. It never ends for me... as long as I'm healthy, I will continue to move outward into the world, to meet new people and to create new experiences.
