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.
