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.
