Learning the language of schools and districts

As an LCSW of 20 years, and as someone who is currently offering lots of services to individual schools and districts, this podcast has been an invaluable source to understand the inner workings of superintendents, principals, and other leaders within districts. Incredibly informative guests, and great practical tips to overall leadership. Thank you, Jeff.
