Welcome to Episode 51 of The Darlington Podcast!
In this episode, Professional Development Coordinator and Senior Ventures Instructor Rebekah Kinney talks with seniors Elsa Quay Corbin of Rome; William Feng of Shanghai, China; Nadejda Spasova of Sofia, Bulgaria; and Elliot Luitwieler of Rome about their Senior Ventures projects.
Senior Ventures is a year-long academic program built on a framework of leadership, innovation and community engagement. Through a proven self-guided exploratory process, seniors whose proposals are selected for this program work independently to develop a project that’s interdisciplinary in scope and is connective, performance-based, investigative, or entrepreneurial.
Rebekah Kinney has been at Darlington since 2002 and currently serves as the professional development coordinator. Previously, she was the technology integration specialist and coordinator, a fourth-grade and kindergarten teacher, and was a member of the house duty staff. Rebekah holds a B.S. and an M.Ed. from Berry College. At Darlington, she has received the Brown Faculty Award and was an inaugural recipient of the Carla and Leonard Wood Faculty Professional Development Endowment Award.
