Show Notes

In this episode, Jeff sits down with longtime OKC resident and scholar, educator, and community activist and advocate John Thompson to hear about how growing up in OKC informed his perspective and his passion for community, intergenerational mentoring, and being an educator and an advocate for positive change in inner city schools and communities.

He shares some very powerful experiences, stories, and formative lessons learned from his many years of being an educator on the Eastside with OKC Public Schools and some very insightful thoughts about what works and what doesn't and hasn't worked in the classroom and in schools in general. 

John also speaks about the transformative power of human relationships and conversations and about why it's so important to bring together schools and their surrounding communities in some very new, innovative, and effective ways that bring teachers, students, and professionals from numerous disciplines together from different generations and from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
