Ep. 6 – ‘Insist on it’ featuring Dr. Lynn Moody

In this episode, Donnell and Jenny interview Dr. Lynn Moody, the recently retired superintendent of the Rowan Salisbury School System. Moody is an accomplished leader in transforming education. We talked about failure being a necessary part of innovation, discomfort as a key to learning, and the charge to continue to reimagine how we educate our children.

The Hummingbird Stories

In The Hummingbird Stories, passionate educators Donnell Cannon and Jenny O’Meara host conversations with the most innovative, equity-minded leaders in education from all across the country.

These “Hummingbirds” are no longer waiting for change in a system on fire, but rather choosing to do something. We hope they’ll inspire you to take real action, no matter how small, toward redesigning schools.

An extraordinary education for all young people is possible. But it’s going to take all of us to make it happen.
