John Finley- A conversation between Jordan Rich and Rev. John Finley, IV, Founder and Head of Boston’s Epiphany School. John is dyslexic, and he credits having dyslexia with his ability to think outside the proverbial box, find his passion and through it his life’s work. John has created a school that supports and celebrates all kinds of learners, doing so with a population of students from under resourced families. The Epiphany School provides wrap around services so that students have support before and after the school day begins and ends, and the support continues even after they graduate and move on in their lives.
