One of our students Colleen had a goal. I was delighted to hear recently that she was accepted to her dream school for her dream career. She took the time to share her whole story/lessons learned and there were so many gems, I am sharing here:
In 2018, Colleen’s dream of being an archaeologist was quashed. She didn’t get in to any of the programs she’d applied to. She needed them to make a career doing what she loved.

If you’re raising a child with a dream, an ambition – something YOU wish they really could have… here’s a must-listen.

For Colleen, it was realizing that doing school the RIGHT way makes you feel strong, smart and worthy. “We didn’t jump right in to test scores or essay writing, we started with our session on strengths, values and passions, and if I’m having a rough day, I go back to it.. that kind of foundational stepping stone is what I needed.” 11”24

All struggles in school are NOT created equal! When students are learning the MOST, they…
Kids are taught to think small. It's a fact. School focuses on the right answer,…
