Life with Passion and Purpose Education Evolution

    • Education

The guiding principle of Education Evolution has been to light passion among educational leaders and to spark them into action. Over the last few years, I believe we’ve done just that. And while the work isn’t over yet, the time has come to put a pause on the podcast.
 
As an advocate for lifelong learning, this week on the podcast I’m sharing what that looks like for me right now. I’ve been working hard to decode what I’ve learned in acts one and two of life and how I can take those learnings and make act three the best it can be.
 
Listen in as I share the journey that’s happened during many years in education, what I’ve learned, and what’s important moving forward. The journey most definitely isn’t over, but it’s okay for it to change along the way.
