The Importance of Knowing Yourself and How You Learn!

By Samantha Kolkey

A few days ago I came across a brief TEDx Talk and I felt compelled to share it. In his powerful presentation, Scott Sonnon details his experience growing up with Dyslexia. His story has so many layers including the impact of violence on children and the importance of advocacy.  Please feel free to leave comments about how you discovered your learning style and any thoughts on how the American education system can approach teaching without enforcing conformity to one learning style.
