Episode 1: Student Perspective
Our first guest for our podcast was Miashanti Smith. She was a student of mine who had an amazingly positive attitude on life. Miashanti dreamed of playing professional football and I remember laughing, in my head of course, because she was a young woman. Little did I know that their was a professional football league and now, she is a significant role player for the Pittsburgh Passion. Outside of her dream she also faced a variety of other hurdles to tackle: oldest of 12 siblings, living in a dangerous neighborhood, being identified as having special needs, and just being a teenager trying to fit in.
In this episode we discuss:
- The power of LISTENING
- Growth Mindset
- Dealing with Adversity
- Urgency in Education – How that influences the learning process
- The POWER of Building Significant Relationships
