About two-thirds through the calendar year, the month of August saunters in and hails the transition from carefree, sprawling days of summer’s grassy fields and sandy shores to the madness that is back-to-school season. We’ve all been there. Some of us may reminisce with (nostalgia or a shudder) about our time in the classroom. Others consider the repercussions of sending little ones off on their own for the first time. Many are fledgling from the nest or returning from a long hiatus to pursue formal or informal education in face-to-face classrooms, hybrid teaching spaces, and online courses. And of course, there are the educators, teachers, and professors whose voices should also be heard.

This month, we’ll focus on sharing stories about learning and growing, about the uncomfortableness that manifests from metamorphosing into a new being through the pursuit of knowledge, and the fresh breath of unveiling our new selves from the chrysalis of hard work, dedication, and persistence. Join us.
