Help classrooms become worthy of human habitation… a dialog with Chip Espinoza on generational cohorts, specifically millennials.
“We aren't saying that all these people are the same, just because they are the same age.”
“My desire is not to have a conversation about millennials, but have a conversation with millennials. I don't want to have a conversation about professors; I want to have a conversation with professors.”

- Think that everything is negotiable (the most effective leaders and teachers of this generation enjoy the collaboration)
