Monica Swope on education that transforms lives – Tanya Flores

Monica is one of the fantastic leaders in our world,

that are changing the face of education.

Monica is one of the fantastic leaders in our world, “that are changing the face of education.”

If you have gone to any traditional school setting you can agree that part of our education system is broken.

Many kids are face socioeconomic challenges, social pressures, and media stereotypes while attending school. On top of this, they are constantly being exposed to media messages that are created for ratings, not a #postiveimpact.

Most of our children are not getting a well-rounded education that will prepare them to successful later in life. Students in many cases begin to resent the educational system and turn to other unhealthy alternatives.

Monica Swope, on the other hand, has been an educator for close to two decades in the Chicagoland area. She believes in the power of education to transform lives.

Through her company, Learning Dimensions she was the project manager for a summer initiative at Smart Collaborative Chicago. There she created a media program to teach tech to youth from Chicago. The kids excelled at developing new websites. She thought initially that these students were probably at top of their high school class. What she did not know, that it was just the opposite. Many of these kids had been at the bottom of the class. By designing innovative curriculum educators give the opportunity for everyone to succeed.

For this same reason she launched Learn the Brand impact apparel to raise funds for organizations that are using transformative learning.

Monica encourages educators and business owners like you and me to Think Outside the Box, as she did at the TEDxPilsenWomen event.

I highly recommend you take a listen to this energetic woman and heartfelt interview. In the interview, Monica will talk about the power of education to transform lives, and also share her entrepreneurial journey that will inspire you.

I would love to hear from you! Are you an educator or business owner? How are you using your medium to transform lives?
