    Embracing the Grey Unknown and Building Trust, Relationships, and Community as a Math Instructional Coach with Maria Papiez

    Embracing the Grey Unknown and Building Trust, Relationships, and Community as a Math Instructional Coach with Maria Papiez

    This week we chat with Maria Papiez. Maria and I actually grew up together! She is my cousin and my very first friend since the day she was born. Our paths have weaved in and out as we’ve ventured on our own purpose-filled paths but always realizing we’re growing similarly in different ways. I love catching up with her and having the ME TOO moments. She is a former 2nd grade teacher, and this past year she took on a new role as a math instructional coach in grades 3-5. Going from working with kiddos to working with adults has challenged her in the best ways. She works with teachers to better improve math instruction in their classroom. We talk about embracing the grey when it comes to working with real people and whats she has found to be the most successful ways to build the trust that is essential to working together as a team. There are so many great tidbits in this episode I know you’ll enjoy!
     
    In this episode, we talk about:
    Transitioning from working with kids to working with teachers Figuring out how adults learn best Building trust, relationships, and community Being willing to be vulnerable and open up to build trust Embracing the grey Using data in the education field Anxiety over sharing your data Digging deeper and understanding anxiety

    Find out What’s Eating Erica Jacobs, or Better yet What She Preaches About Recovery, Yoga, Oils, and Personal Development

    Find out What’s Eating Erica Jacobs, or Better yet What She Preaches About Recovery, Yoga, Oils, and Personal Development

    This week I chat with Erica Jacobs. She is many things including a writer, healer, yoga teacher, Jesus loving Jew, extroverted introvert, will make you laugh till you cry, then say, "there's an oil for that," but my favorite by far is how she can have a serious conversation and be light-hearted at the same time. She teaches yoga, but secretly uses the classroom to teach about addiction, tolerance, recovery, grief, lust, desire, humility, freedom, God, Quantum Physics, and Warrior II...with a few curse words thrown in for good luck...which you’ll get a taste of right here during our episode. She is building a doTERRA business and consistently makes sure she isn’t falling victim to the "stop playing small/live your best life by buying what I'm selling" language, which I appreciate about her. She hates all personal development lingo and tries to cultivate a language and personal message that insists upon wholeness just for existing. We dig into many topics but the last 15 to 20 minutes are by far the best in my opinion.   
     
    In this episode, we talk about:
    Her experience in the fitness world Eating disorder recovery Limiting beliefs and expectations around being a yoga teacher Vulnerability versus transparency Peek into the 12 steps Connecting stories into teachings in yoga and oils The personal development loop Muting unneeded voices Finding help and accountability Grace bringing up more resistance than disappointment does Eliminating to get to the essential Does any of this even matter

    Becoming Self-Aware of Fear, Moving Towards Courage with Illustrator and Storyteller, Stephanie Chinn

    Becoming Self-Aware of Fear, Moving Towards Courage with Illustrator and Storyteller, Stephanie Chinn

    This week I chat with Stephanie Chinn, the illustrator and storyteller behind my logo. She illustrates everyday life experience that she goes through as well as experiences that  she feels connected with. She typically leans towards illustrating artwork that is centered around mental health and is currently focusing on body image (check out her artwork!). Her artwork tends to stem from life experiences that challenge her and inspires her along with initiatives that light her up. What I love about Stephanie is how raw she was in this episode and how she has navigated challenges and created something very beautiful out of them. I definitely took lots of notes during this recording!   
     
    In this episode, we talk about:
    Stephanie’s journey through addiction into illustration Courage and self-awareness Noticing and working through fear, patterns, and self-talk Impostor syndrome and being a creative Finding support when we don’t have the answers

Journey to real health

I am so grateful for what Veronica shares in her podcast. I am in my early 40s and am committed to treating my body and mind better so that I can feel so much better than I have. Veronica provides simple strategies/ guidance that I can implement right away. I like listening to it early in the day because it is a reminder for how I want to treat myself the rest of the day.
