What Being a Magician Taught Me About Education

Step into the unknown and challenge your own understanding of education. This session begins with an interactive experience in which the seemingly impossible becomes possible. As a professional magician, I have traveled with Magicians Without Borders, teaching magic to those who live in some of the most worn-torn, and impoverished parts of the world. In this talk, I share the valuable lessons that I learned as a professional magician turned teacher, and how it parallels the field of education.
