In this episode of Spark Joy in EDU, we chat with Dawn Harris about how we can foster a culture where learners want to be. Dawn shares insights on how we can find passions outside of the classroom to pour ourselves into and the importance of not feeling as though everything needs to be 'perfect.' She also reminds us that as educators we are all unique and that we cannot compare what we do to revitalize or fulfill ourselves with what others say. Tune in and hear Dawn's reflections, thoughts, ideas, and about her favorite quote!
