Welcome to Heads Up, a blogging experiment that aims to:
- connect the people, parts, and principles of Durham Academy;
- share ideas about learning and human development;
- spotlight a few of the many wondrous things I get to see every day at Durham Academy.
Thanks for reading the posts below — and sending news, links and ideas worth sharing.

Teach your daughters well
DA alumna Meghan Scott '13, along with MS Science Teacher Randee Haven O'Donnell, is spending part of her summer inspiring young women at Duke's Action Science Camp, which just completed its 24th year.
Meghan shared a poignant video: "What a little girl hears when you tell her she's pretty".
As did another video I watched this morning (#LikeaGirl, shared by my colleague Leslie King), this one broke through my skepticism of corporate-produced moral messages and brought tears to my eyes.
Here's to a school full of powerful young women who run, throw, and do science like girls!
