Her personal belief was that if you, “educate a boy and you educate a man, but educate a girl and you educate a family” (Canadian Museum of civilization, 2012). Hoodless was able to play a prominent role in granting women a right to education. When looking at the role that I as a school leader, or a curriculum leader in Family Studies can do, this example inspires me. It is easy to see that Hoodless was motivated by her desire to change the current mindset towards women. As an educator, I firmly believe that a shift needs to take place within our system towards the subject area of Family Studies; we are currently in a time where the change we are trying to create is in the concept that family studies is not JUST education for women but education for everyone. In my lesson today I shared with my students that sometimes it is not so much the content I teach them that I want them to take away when they leave this place but the skills and abilities to apply their knowledge or seek our answers and information; those are the things I want to remain with them as they journey through life. This is a lesson for all students, not just females, but people as a whole. At times when looking at the big picture it can be intimidating and seems as if one person cannot have an impact on a certain mindset. However, Hoodless is able to provide an example of the effectiveness of change that one person can make; she represents the change that I can make as one person if I apply my efforts. Anderson in her journal entitled “Reinventing our Profession” discusses how social sciences still remains in the curriculum just under a new name and curriculum. The importance of this is that there is a new face, and research has emerged to further the path of family studies in the school system. There is a focus in this journal about professionals “letting the world know what the new and improved product includes” (Anderson, 2004).
