Why Second and Third Chances Matter for Kids

New Hampshire State Teacher of the Year 2020, Kim Piper, works within the prison population of the state. She shares what she has learned from her time working with some amazing students in the prison system and compares it to what she learned as a middle school teacher as well. What she's discovered can help us all become better teachers who give second chances and more to those who struggle and need our love more than they need our condemnation.
