Love & Challenge in Schools: Dave Hill

May 8, 2019

Dave Hill is the founder of Heart Smart (www.heartsmart.school), which is a character education program that originated with Dave's own life story and is now in 300 UK schools and making its way into schools in the US.

Dave shares about the story of Heart Smart, Boris the Robot, and his own family from where the idea. Likewise, he shares the "5 Core Principles" and sticky language of the Heart Smart program. Personally, I appreciate Dave's thoughts on healthy schools environments that have an appropriate balance of both Challenge and Love, and how both are necessary for the growth and development of children.
