A letter from the Principal Investigator
My name is Dr. Stacy Scott, and I’d like to welcome you to The Spirit of Wonder project, an idea which has been formulating in my mind for several years. This project is informed by my travels, consulting work, and background in education and psychology. I hope this project brings us together across borders and cultures everywhere.
I have had an extensive career in education beginning as a teacher at the middle school level and director of diversity programs for 15 years; as a psychologist, training, coaching and consulting to schools and their leadership for 21 years; and, finally as a superintendent and associate superintendent of schools for nine years. My first book and signature workshop named Making Equity Work was the focus of my work for many years. I have focused on bringing concerns of equity in education to light for the past 30 years.
Having worked with diverse communities internationally, this project also emerges from my belief in the power of people and my desire to bring this power to light. This is my wish for The Spirit of Wonder project. Join me in this effort.
I look forward to a fruitful collaboration!
Dr. Stacy Scott
