We use professional theater as a tool to inspire students, help them look at the real-life issues they face, demonstrate they are members of a larger community and act as a springboard for discussion in the classroom workshops and at home.

We Have Something to Celebrate!

The My Story/My Brilliance project at Olson Middle School connects students with their brilliance and their understanding of themselves as contributors to a thriving community. My Story My Brilliance puts students at the center of the school experience. Students explore where they are from, who they are now, and who they are becoming. There is an emphasis on student voice and student choice. My Story My Brilliance provides academic, social and emotional learning. Additional school counselors and reflective journaling personalize the learning for our students. Relationship building is a key component. Teachers work in teams to facilitate personalized learning projects. Students see themselves as members of the global community. My Story My Brilliance helps us achieve Olson’s mission of ensuring our students discover and maximize their brilliance as scholars and members of our global community.
