Natural Pod™ LIVE has been created for, and by, our incredible community of educators, students, architects and anyone with a stake in creating better learning spaces and experiences. It’s an online streaming talk show where we interview education leaders who are sharing their personal stories behind the challenges and opportunities of creating exceptional learning environments. Join us as we explore the new approaches for what’s possible in the future of education with the people who are making it happen. This is your opportunity to learn directly from them about the challenges and successes and how they are approaching this work.
About This Episode
In this edition of Natural Pod LIVE, our CEO Bridgitte Alomes chats with Jerzell Pierre-Louis, Owner/Founder at Sprout and Bloom Early Education Centers about her journey as an educator. Starting from scratch, Jerzell followed her passion and opened up an early childhood center in 2013, hoping to make an impact on the lives of children within her community. Today, Jerzell is the Owner of both Sprout and Bloom Early Education Centers, two thriving spaces. Despite adversity, Jerzell channeled her passion toward an impactful mission – to inspire the joy of learning. Bridgitte and Jerzell will reflect on their journeys and share their experiences around lessons learned, and words of wisdom to pursue meaningful work. This session will not only inspire others in following their passions, whether in education or not, but also to know it’s possible to bring a dream to life.
