Former Theatre Arts Teacher
"I love Post-Its and high quality pens!"
Hi there! My name is Alysha and I'm the Community Manager at The Guild. I'm passionate about education, equity, and human centered design. I'm a former Theatre Arts Teacher and still love to facilitate workshops and teach whenever I get the chance! When I'm not working, I enjoy beach days with my dog, avocado, and a bottle of kombucha. I love the Teachers Guild Community and look forward to hearing from you. Please say hello!
JD, this is incredible and so relevant for both students and adults! I LOVE this idea and almost wonder if it's an opportunity for teachers to transparently experience this process alongside students. Have you tried this before? Super curious to hear more about how it went!
Ling, I love this so much! At The Guild, we often use Superpower Cards by SYPartners. I wonder if there's a variation of this where you could incorporate something like this into the curriculum. The examples of student work are incredible. This is very cool. Thank you so much for sharing!!
Wow! Greg, thank you so much for such a thoughtful comment. Totally agreed--technology has potential to connect everyone in ways that feel really authentic & develop personal relationships. You're absolutely correct! I LOVE the idea of having students also tell the stories of their new friends; such a great empathy building exercise and exercise in listening. Thanks Greg!
