WBUR's Edify introduces Lessons Learned, a year-long series exploring 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. Lessons Learned stories will be heard on WBUR's Morning Edition the fourth Monday of each month and online at wbur.org/edify.
Do you have a personal story of transformation, thanks to someone you talked to or something you experienced as part of your education? Send your story in an email  to edify@wbur.org or tag the team on Twitter @WBUREdify with the hashtag #LessonsLearned.
