joins GCE introducing The Empathic Civilization, a YouTube video with bestselling author, Jeremy Rifkin taking a look at the evolution of empathy, how it has impacted our development and how it has help shape our society. Please find the link below.

Amy concluded her hour with Circle and the question “What is your Spark?” Peter Benson (president and CEO of Minneapolis-based Search Institute) helped coin the concept of Spark in his latest book Sparks: How Parents Can Ignite the Hidden Strengths of Teens. The students shared thoughts about their Spark and left pondering the question, “Have you thought about how this Spark/talent could get you paid later in life?”

Students were also encouraged to go home and ask their parents three questions and comment on my blog. The three questions are below.

1. As a teenager, what was your Spark?

2. Did it change?

3. What is it now?

Thank you Amy, we are very fortunate to have you on the team.
