Independent Thinking: a Podcast by Tilton School [Episode 1]
Sarah O'Neill

This past fall, Tilton School began our venture into the world of podcasting. With a wealth of knowledge throughout our close-knit community, we invited faculty and partners to share in their areas of expertise. Hosted by Mike Landroche, Academic Dean, this monthly podcast serves as a resource for parents and educators of teens.

Welcome to Independent Thinking, where we tackle big questions about how to best help adolescents navigate their high school years, unlock their potential, and prepare for an ever-changing (and ever-challenging) world.

Episode 1: Detoxing Students from Grades and the Gift of Feedback

with Megan Killigrew

Prior to joining the Tilton School faculty in 2017, English faculty Megan Killigrew taught English and coached mountain biking and cycling at White Mountain School for two years. A 2013 graduate of Dartmouth College, Megan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English with a minor in Geography.  In August of 2016, she became one in four people to hike all 2,189 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Read more about her journey here.

For our debut episode, Megan discusses detoxifying students from their relationships with grades and the gift of feedback.
