A Leader for Life
It is amazing to sit down and talk with Dr. Winston Sakurai. He has a diverse, impressive, vast experience in education. Through all his positions, he has always had a clear sight set on doing what is best for students. He champions their leadership and supports teachers in every way possible.
Winston had an amazing start to his career, working on the state board of education side to support and push education in a positive way.
His first teaching experience was as a long-term substitute where he learned the ropes of teaching
As a building leader, Winston encouraged teachers to allow students to be the leaders. At assemblies, graduations, and leadership classes.
They created leadership classes which changed the mindset around student leadership.
Providing students with true ownership, including the budget for a project, to allow them to learn through the experiences and attach emotions to remember it forever.
Creating opportunities for students to obtain ownership in the classroom with specific lessons.
Winston questions Ken and Matt to see how the pandemic has shifted education for us in Pennsylvania.
