In this episode, I interview two of my students who are both talented musicians. They discuss the value of music and how it shaped their lives and shaped their education. All the more reason why every school should promote music.

I interview my former student, Yatziry Ochoa, Senior Class of 2022 and her involvement with “Peer Mediation” and how she helps resolves issues before it escalates into the Will Smith vs. Chris Rock ordeal. She also teaches me the latest Gen Z terms…swag!
Will Smith vs. Chris Rock. While I did not watch the Oscars, that one incident of Smith smacking Rock caught the world’s attention. Seemingly, it was not the way to resolve conflicts.

There is a marked difference between being Booksmart vs Streetsmart. What are the differences? Can one talk into both?
I interview two great students who thought they knew what careers they wanted to pursue, only to change their minds and decided to pursue their callings.
We’ve all been taught to simply find a career. Make good money. Take care of ourselves. Not a bad idea. But here are those who grow weary of their careers. They wonder why studied a subject in the first place. Then there are those whose career is a ‘calling’. They love going to work, and struggle to leave work because their heart is so much in it.
Students discuss what is their purpose behind high school. I have a senior who will discuss how he progressed throughout high school and several freshmen talking about what their experience is like, and how it does not match what they thought high school would be.
Here I discuss what the purpose of high school is. It’s not about grades, it’s not about ranking, it’s not about just getting ready for college, work, or military. It’s about finding your self, defining yourself, growing up to be independent.
