We have seen a huge percentage of college dropouts. These have caused them anxiety, feeling like they weren’t able to live up to their full potential and their zone of genius. How can we help our kids prepare for their success in getting into high school and beyond into college?
Listen as Lynn Teatro dives into how we can help our kids figure out their zone of genius and live to their full potential. She identified the keys to college success and how parents can set a good example to their kids when it comes to education and success. Lynn has the mission to help dropouts and other struggling students find their zone of genius, and help them boost their confidence.
“30% of students did drop out in their first year. That is a huge loss, it's a loss of money, it's a loss of brilliance, not not only for the students, but for the future of our planet. We need every person to find their zone of genius and work that so they can be fulfilled and that we heal this planet of all the strife that it's going through. We need people who are educated and as knowledgeable as possible.” - Lynn Teatro
About our Guest:
Lynn Teatro was raised to be a farmer's wife and a mother. Rural Ontario, north of Hwy #7 expectation.
She was married 2 weeks out of high school. Lynn wasn't able to graduate because she failed physics and was getting married, so it really didn’t matter. Or so she believed back then.
12 years later she was a single parent of two kids, back in class with the teens and completing her Grade 13 (Yes, she’s that old).This time she got to hang out with the cool kids. Her nickname was the Seagrams Special.
Lynn applied to Trent University as a high school graduate and completed her 3- year undergrad in Psychology in 2 years. Lynn’s academic advisor told her that she couldn’t do that. It was against regulations or something.Too late, Professor Earnest, She had already finished the work for her last credit.
Lynn had a varied career as a front line social service worker. She worked in shelters for abused women and their children, with seniors, with sex offenders in prison, helping the homeless…She had a two year stint pissing off landlords and pulling miracles out of her ass. Her daughter, Megan’s words, not the actual job description. But it’s close.
Now as a quasi-retiree, she has made it her mission to help dropouts and other struggling students find their zone of genius. She helps them boost their confidence with workshops, 1:1 counselling, and group coaching. She is also building a professional roster of like-minded people to help her help struggling students fly the nest and on to success.
It’s a mighty task and Lynn has learned to ask for help the hard way. She is proud of her rural roots. Lynn knows for sure that you can take a girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl. And she also knows that sometimes our personal trail takes us where we weren’t expected to go. She challenges all of us to enter that huge unknown world of possibility. So take her advice no matter who you are and where you are at in life.
