Sparking Curiosity!
What does it mean to be curious? As educators and parents, how do we foster creative thought while balancing the necessities of formal learning?

New Beginnings
As September comes to an end, I hope all of you will take a moment to reflect upon a few things, maybe even 15 things (!), that you are proud of so far.  How have you nourished the beginning of your school year? How have you set your students and yourself up for a year of rigor and connection, creativity and risk taking, meaningful learning and joy? What moments are you the most proud about?  How will you continue to nourish your learning and your students’ learning throughout the year? Today you’ll hear from principals and teachers in elementary, middle, and high schools across our district.  Most importantly, you’ll hear from the students themselves-- their words, their poems, and their music. In fact, all the music that you’ll hear on this podcast is and always will be performed by San Diego Unified students. We'll take you to Sunset View Elementary, Adams Elementary, Wilson MIddle School, Grant K-8 and Patrick Henry High School. And, you'll hear the sounds of the orchestra from the School of Creative and Performing Arts.
