In this episode, Jamie Williamson, the Head of School at The Windward School, shares his experiences as an educator and leader. He calls for creating educational environments that centralize in advocating for the overall development of the child and that remain laser focused in providing instruction using empirically validated research and data. As a leader, Jamie discusses the importance of values and creating a school community where all students, families, teachers, and leaders thrive. 
In this episode, we speak with Dr. Richard Aslin, a Senior Research Scientist at Haskins Laboratories. Dr. Aslin explains how neuroimaging has broadened our understanding of the remarkable abilities of the infant brain to acquire language. He cites examples of how infants learn language, and how that influences later learning. Lastly, Dr. Aslin describes the potential for closer integration between research and practice to optimize the learning environment for all students.
