Opening Staff Days: Reflecting Back to Advance Forward

Andrew Campion, Director of Marketing and Communications
Fayerweather Staff and Administration began the school year with a day of deep discussion and reflection lead by Julie Jungalwala, founder, and executive director of the Institute for the Future of Learning. Staff reflected on what they learned as individuals, as a team, and as a school during the last year of living and teaching in the pandemic. Lessons learned from the last year helped shape some of the planning for the coming year, as well as personal and professional goals for our staff.
Julie Jungalwala is the founder and executive director of The Institute for the Future of Learning, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping transform the 'one size does not fit all' model of education. The Institute works with a diverse range of clients including public schools, independent schools, public charter schools, and educational philanthropic organizations. Julie is also an instructor at Harvard Extension School where she teaches authentic leadership, change management and strengths-based development. She graduated from the Harvard Graduate School of Education with a master’s degree in Education, specializing in adult development, learning technology and behavioral change. Her book, The Human Side of Changing Education, was published by Corwin Press in 2018.
