Today, I have the great honor of speaking to our Eighth grade students as part of their “Last Lecture” series run by Anne Bergmann, Gina Doane, and Lisa MacDonald. Monthly, they ask a member of the school community to speak to their students in the format of a “Last Lecture” to try to impart some wisdom upon the students.
My charge today is to speak to these students about the idea of change: how it affects us, how it changes us, how we respond to it, and most importantly, how we make it. I’ve invited the students here to discuss their answers to the question “How does a big change in your life make you feel?”
This post is open to any and all to respond to, but I’d love for the students and their teachers to drop in their views.
