A Journey of Affirmation with Laurie McIntosh
Updated: Aug 21, 2022
Our guest this episode, Laurie McIntosh, shares the role affirmation has played in her journey as an educator. She talks of her belief that schools should be a place of connection, community and healing, and her hope to be a teacher who leaves a legacy and who her students tell their grandchildren about. Laurie is most excited about, and proud of, the fact that she is helping nurture students who are 'really good people' who dream and plan really big; as well as seeing and supporting teachers to know they are 'enough'.
Laurie's inspirational, influential and impactful recommendations:
Cause - Blankets of Hope
