Ep33-Andrea Klunder and 'Power Your Story'

Andrea Klunder works at Ray Graham Training Center in Chicago, a high school for diverse learners and students with special challenges and needs. There she runs a podcast mentoring program called Power Your Story. She helps the students create and produce their very own podcast. It is a space where students who may not always be heard have a voice.  Andrea explained to me how the program works, her student’s level of involvement, how she sees some of her students momentarily overcoming some speech challenges, the affirmation they feel when seeing the analytics of how many people are listening, and how you can learn more about possibly starting programs like this in your child’s school.  The podcast is called “Power Your Story”, found on all of your podcast apps. The students would love if you checked it out and gave it a listen, and I think you would too.
