Empathy seems to be the the common word that is being used amongst all the speakers today. We are in some tough times in the world and the connection between literacy and empathy go hand in hand. You could feel the passion in their voices as they spoke about what literacy does for humankind.
The sessions I attended today were: Adora Svitak, Kwame Alexander, Lucy Calkins, Amanda Hartman, and Kelly Gallagher. They were all amazing and very inspiring. I definitely was equipped with tools that will help me on my mission to make change.
