Episode 18: Jessica

October 11, 2018

Jon speaks with Jessica Douglass, a Teaching & Learning Specialist at Tower Hill School. They discuss the reason why many folks in education are using the term learning difference instead of learning disability (and why that language choice is important), Jess talks about her journey as a learner and why she has mixed feelings toward her status and identity as a straight-A student in high school, and Jess talks about the importance of restructuring schools and systems for a diverse group of students as it pertains to learning styles and differences, as well as gender, race, and other aspects of identity.
