Breaking From Tradition – My TEDx Talk

A few months ago I had the opportunity to give a TED Talk during a TEDx Youth Event here in Burlington. The video was up briefly and then taken down due to a minor technological glitch. The complete talk is no up and can be viewed below.  It was an honor to be part of this event which featured talented educators like Kerry Gallagher, Starr Sackstein, Eric Johnson, Jeff Bradbury, and Marialice Curran. Thankfully, the adults speakers preceded the impressive talks from students. I am grateful for the work that Jenn Scheffer put in to make this event possible and the fact that she did not have me follow BHS Senior Timmy Sullivan.

I am hopeful that my talk “Breaking From Tradition” strings together a few cogent points.

I feel blessed to be an educator. I have had the good fortune of working as an English teacher, an Assistant Principal, a Principal and an Assistant Superintendent. I currently serve as the Assistant Superintendent of Burlington Public Schools (MA).
