Lessons Learned: Personal Stories Of Education

(Jesse Costa/WBUR)

Education stretches us. It exposes us to new things. It can be an immense challenge, but also an opportunity. It can make a lifelong impact.

We at Edify want to hear those stories. It's part of a new series exploring those defining moments in education: when a teacher went the extra mile to connect, when a student shows a teacher a valuable lesson, or, perhaps, when a lesson about Maya Angelou or geometry opened up new worlds.

We want to hear from all walks of life in the education world, from every corner of Massachusetts. We've got a good start, but we need your help to keep this going. If you have a personal story of transformation thanks to someone you talked to or something you experienced as part of your education, we'd love to hear from you.

Send your stories to edify@wbur.org or tag us on Twitter @WBUREdify with the hashtag #LessonsLearned.

All our Lessons Learned stories will be here. And tune in to Morning Edition on 90.9 WBUR-FM every fourth Monday of the month to hear people reflect on pivotal moments in their education.
