A Look Back R O S A L I E W I N A R D Temple Grandin is a Professor of Livestock Behavior & Welfare at Colorado State University. She is also a best-selling author, autism activist and consultant to the livestock industry on animal behavior. In the 2010 TIME 100 list of the 100 most influential people in the world, she was named in the "Heroes" category. Her SXSWedu Keynote presentation on Monday, March 7 was titled "Helping Different Kinds of Minds Solve Problems." Educators need to help the students who think differently to be successful. I am concerned that many creative talented individuals are being totally stymied by rigid educational requirements. All my thoughts are in pictures, which was a great asset for my work designing facilities for the livestock industry. If I was a student today, I would have been totally blocked by the algebra requirement. The world needs all the different kinds of minds to solve problems. - Temple Grandin
