Dual School article + Updates from a relaxing weekend in West Virginia

Updates
Dual School launched at William Penn High School! As always, it’s incredible to work with young people who want to make change. The girls in this group are working on problems like body image, discrimination and support for immigrants. I can’t wait to see how this semester progresses!
Also last week, this long article about us came out in Delaware Today. It does a good job summarizing a lot of what we’ve done over the past 6 ish months:

Whitewater rafting in West Virginia
Sophia and I drove to West Virginia this weekend for a 24 hour vacation. We ate at quirky little restaurants and went whitewater rafting on the Potomac river.

We also walked around historic Harper’s Ferry and hiked a couple miles of the Appalachian Trail!
The last time I was in Harper’s Ferry was in 2013, just a week before starting college at UD. I was with an early move-in program called Summit, a 5 day backpacking trip with 12 other soon-to-be-freshmen. Choosing to go on that excursion was one of the best decisions I’ve made. I recommend everyone do some sort of early move-in experience before starting college because it puts you a step ahead of everyone else when you start.
Adventures in Design Thinking
On Wednesday, I’m flying out to Palo Alto to be on the teaching team for a week-long bootcamp at Stanford. It’s an incredible team of facilitators and I know I’m going to learn so much at every turn. Stay tuned on Twitter for updates along the way!
Thanks for reading,
Zack
