Jody is a passionate believer in the power of the relationship with the people we love, lead, and teach. Her favorite thing on the planet to do is to speak with educators – they have the power to change the trajectory of a life every single day. It is time, she believes, that we need to start focusing less on Kids These Days, and more on those of you who hold them. The core of everything she speaks and writes about comes down to this: We are wired to do hard things. We can do those hard things so much easier when we remember this: We are wired for connection.
