Great Work on These Podcasts
Jeff continues to knock it out of the park with timely, thoughtful, and often times inspiring work. His insightful questions get to the heart of each issue and show us something special about each guest. I’ve become a regular listener and I am a better leader for it.
I continue to find these podcasts insightful and focused on relevant topics that impact educators, families, and most importantly- kids. What topic could be more important and noble than education?
Powerful podcast for anyone interested in education
I’m hooked on learning from this podcast to hear the point of view of a high level superintendent on student achievement and success. As a parent, I’m making some shifts this year with my own kids, and as an educational consultant, I can see a point of view of important educational trends with solutions attached. Thank you for your knowledge.
