Pioneer Tour, Bryce Carlisle

The educational instruction model has barely changed since The Industrial Revolution, but it is still the prevailing method at almost every school in the country. Longtime educator Bryce Carlisle saw that the world has changed and how we teach and learn should change with it. That’s why he and fellow teachers formed The Waterloo School in Austin, Texas.

From Broadway hits like The Prom that show us how to build community and acceptance, to documentary filmmakers that lay bare the unique trauma of 9/11 children. From hometown heroes that give back by supporting foster children, to small town personalities that share their everyday lives; they get us to think or move us to laugh and cry right along with them.

Pioneer Tour, Susan Ramirez

While attending a conference on foster care in 2010, Austin Angels founder Susan Ramirez made a decision to create change in the foster care system. What started as a local movement in Austin Texas quickly became a national non-profit with a focus on improving the foster experience for children and the foster families. Nelda sits down with Susan to discuss what helped her make this decision, and the impact she has seen on the families involved.
