    Good afternoon!

    I am currently in a hamster wheel of ideas trying to decide how to introduce Brene Brown’s #daringclassrooms to my high school. We live in an extremely conservative (predominantly white) community that is resistant to change.

    On my way to work this morning, I was listening to “Dare to Lead,” and Dr. Bell’s vision opened my eyes! I have a million questions, but my main one is: “What is the best way to introduce #daringclassrooms to my colleagues and administrators?” I am currently in my 19th year as an English teacher, but this is only my second year at this school. I was raised in this area, so I know it will be a challenge and not be viewed as “more work.”

    Any advice you have will be greatly appreciated!

    Carpe Diem,

    Brandi Tyson
