The Teachable Moment

Featuring the stories of students from Dunn School — a day and residential boarding school in Los Olivos, Calif. — The Teachable Moment is a point in every student’s journey where the proverbial light bulb fluoresces, allowing a crucial epiphany to take place and light the path of inspiration toward an area of study, a passion-filled career or the gift of self-discovery. These are our teachable moments.
