Teach students…
    ·       to be problem solvers   (Tinkering Labs are great for problem solving and critical thinking) 
    ·      to take risks
    ·      to think critically
    ·      to think about where they came from.  Have them tell their story.
 Give student the permission to THINK!

Have high expectations for your students.  They will meet us there! Expect the best!

Americans are natural entrepreneurs, we have the DNA of risk takers because we are the decedents of immigrants who are the ultimate risk takers.

Give students permission to be engaged!

*My big takeaway from the conference was to give students the opportunities to become problem solvers and critical thinkers!  This will give them the tools to become entrepreneurs!
