112 – Changing Ourselves, Our Assessment Practice & Our Careers (w Starr Sackstein)

Though Starr is considered a leading voice in innovative assessment and grading practices, it didn’t start out that way. Once upon a time, she was a teacher in her classroom on the precipice of making a terrifying change. In this episode, Nat talks with Starr about how her personal growth journey triggered a change in her practices and eventually a major pivot in her career. Learn how Starr learned to let go of control and empower students so you can do the same. Show Notes:

  • How doing personal, inner work sparks an openness to change and learning, like it did when Starr chose to transform her assessment and grading practices.
  • The biggest misconception about assessment is not believing that kids are capable of being assessors on their own behalf; it’s vulnerable to release control.
  • Cultivating respectful education by seeing people and moving together puts joy back in the job.
  • When being an innovative teacher puts a target on your back.
  • Leveraging our skills as teachers allows us to move beyond typical jobs in education to expand our impact.
  • Surrendering to the energy of the universe to allow our path to unfold and find our people.
