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 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.
