"Metaphor and Metacognition: the mind when pushed to invention"

This is a TedEX talk by the director of my school. I feel very proud and honored to spend my days having meaningful conversations with children fostering creativity, critical thinking and awareness about life. 

"Alise is the founder and director of Evergreen Community School in Santa Monica, California. Her work with children over the last 30 years sheds light on not only how children think, but also explores the ways in which the thinking of children generates, illuminates, and inspires dialogue and creativity in adults. Recognizing children as vital contributors to culture, Alise shares how children's unfettered perceptions have the power to jump-start the adult mind with refreshing and novel points of view."
