Adora Svitak urges us to remember the lessons of childhood!
Meet Adora Svitak. Adora is a writer, teacher and global activist.
Adora will be honored at the NEA Foundation Salute to Excellence in Education Gala on February 11th.
I can't wait to hear her wisdom!
So, what's her passion?
Adora has the gift of instilling a love of learning in others. She teaches classes at schools, writes books and inspires large groups with her speeches.
The causes she holds most dear are literacy, learning, youth leadership and world hunger.
This sounds like a successful adult who is doing the "talk circuit," but Adora Svitak is 13 years old! She has been publishing since she was seven.
When she teaches, she activates creativity, a love of reading and the use of imagination.
Adora will adress over 800 guests at the NEA Foundation Salute to Excellence Gala and I'll be one of them.
What will she teach us all?
