Worth your time as an educator

I am a teacher & my time is precious. I made a personal commitment to my own self care this year (2021- and on) as the toll of teaching this year has been significant. This podcast is worth a listen. Dan Kreiness is a coach in our district and was my instructional coach for a year. He helped me through a very tough year so I am personally grateful for his time & encouragement.

Helping Educators Be Leaders

Every single educator is a leader, yet where do they learn leadership skills? Dan's amazing podcast fills this void. His topics are not only insightful, but his guests provide practical skills to help educators be better leaders. He realizes that educators are role models for not only their students, but their peers and their community. And since leadership is multifaceted, the variety of guests touch on a broad array of subjects that help build leadership skills. A must listen!
