Jadi Taveras; People First Leadership

In this episode of Well Being Walks, Kip walks with Jadi Tavares.  Jadi is Head of School at Esperanza Academy - an independent, tuition free middle school for girls in historic Lawrence, MA.

Jadi talks about the school’s unique model, which includes a 12-year commitment to their students, during which the school provides ongoing social and emotional support as students navigate high school and college.  The school’s mission centers on culturally responsive teaching, restorative justice, and a relationship-centered ethos.  This is so critical for our future leaders.

We invite you to listen to their conversation, which covers vulnerability in leadership, open communication, and the value in showing up as your whole-self.  You can learn more about the Esperanza Academy here: https://www.esperanzaacademy.org/
