Future-ready students need to be creative. They need to know how to communicate their ideas and how to collaborate as problem solvers. To master these and other twenty-first-century requirements, they will need to be critical thinkers. Engaged students are more likely to internalize learning and apply it to situations beyond the classroom. So how can you get your learners to engage? Follow Brian's journey from his early days as a substitute teacher, to more recently, as a University Instructor, three time TEDx speaker, best selling author and Canadian Prime Minister's Award Recipient For Teaching Excellence.

    Road to Awesome

    Road to Awesome

    In this episode we speak to Colorado Superintendent Darrin Peppard about leading a school district through a pandemic, drive-thru graduation and his upcoming book called Road To Awesome! 
    Two Roads Diverged and I Took the Road to Awesome

    While Darrin is known for his positive outlook and energy, it hasn't always been that way during his educational career. There was a point when the negative road was 'easy street.'
    But then these two questions were asked, "Why does it always have to be about what they do wrong? Why can't it be about what they do right?" This hit Darrin like a bolt of lightning, splitting his path in two...
    From that moment on, Darrin has been on the Road To Awesome.
    Darrin Peppard is also a motivational speaker, consultant, and leadership coach. Darrin works with organizations and leaders to bring a culture of positive leadership, excellent climate, and results. 
    Darrin's keen insight along with experiences as a superintendent, school principal, teacher and coach will help bring your organization to a new level. Darrin will get you on the Road To Awesome!!
