On Our Minds May 2018: Speaking Up and Speaking Out

Maureen Devlin, Head of Lower School, and Suzanne Fogarty, Head of School, share their perspective on all the exciting and innovative initiatives taking place in Nursery–Grade 5. With a combined 55 years of experience in education, from New Mexico to New York City, from Brookline to Brooklyn, we highlight independent school teaching and learning at its best.

Lincoln girls speak up and speak out. We’ve seen it firsthand, from our youngest students to our rising seniors, and each time we ask: how do they find the courage to state their opinions (and they have many!) and share their ideas? Certainly a few are natural extroverts, unafraid to stand in front of their peers and say what’s on their mind, but for others, using and trusting their own voice is a learned skill. Boldness can be born, but here at Lincoln, we know it also can be built.
