Video Transcript – Get a (Student) Life: Be Curious and Kind

Gabrielle Moore: I think this may be a little bit repetitive, but be curious and kind. Curiosity, like I said, I believe is the foundation of empathy and all the research says being emotionally intelligent and being empathetic will make you a better leader in the community, in your career, in your family, in your friend group and as a student. So that is my focus, and also when I’m teaching that is the focus of my classroom, is I want my students to think less about themselves and more about others. Be curious, ask open-ended questions, and really authentically wonder where somebody’s coming from. This isn’t a competition; our hearts are different hards, all of our lives have different things to offer, but together we’re better.
