To teach students well, you have to know them well, even what they like to eat and draw!  At Mission Hill, teachers have the autonomy to help establish those close relationships with students and to really help students approach problems creatively, think critically, and place themselves in another's shoes...

Every other Thursday through June, we will premiere the latest episode of the 10-part documentary series capturing great teaching as it happens at The Mission Hill School in Boston, MA, a leading Changemaker School.  Here's Chapter 1.

And on other days throughout the week, we will showcase top quality wrap-around content from StartEmpathy contributors, including expert commentary, radio podcasts, and even animated shorts!

Stay tuned for tomorrow's reaction to Chapter 2 from Principal Michelle Hughes -- and much, much more!

Be sure to stay current with all happenings related to the series at as well as the #YearatMH Twitter hashtag and Facebook page too.  And you can find some highlights, constantly evolving in this super cool Prezi as well!

Here's Chapter 3.
