    Episode 9 - New Mindset Needed

    Episode 9 - New Mindset Needed

    It's the night before returning to school and just like a kid, I can't seem to settle my mind! This episode I share with you three ingredients to success that I believe all of us need this school year from our communities. Whether you are starting in-person, remote, or with a hybrid in between, a growth mindset is needed to make this all work.

    Episode 6 - Kid Segment 1

    This week's podcast is all about having fun! In addition to being the principal at St. Cecilia Cathedral Grade School, I am also a mom to four kids, three of which who attend school there. Since we are on summer break and social distancing rules still apply in our community, this week's Kid Segment is just two of my kids and I talking about, well...see for yourself!

    Episode 5 - What to do?

    Episode 5 - What to do?

    How is the St. Cecilia community responding to the killing of George Floyd?  This week's episode I talk about how to recognize the phases of action/inaction that I have seen in the community around me.  I also share what parents in the white community can and should be doing right now to bring about change.



    Thank you to Joe Truss (Twitter @trussleadership) for his support in having me share his tweets during the episode.  An article titled 'Advice for the Newly Woke White Teachers on Teaching Black Children' in Education Week can be found here where Mr. Truss was interviewed for.

    Episode 4 - Milly Garcia Talks Family

    Episode 4 - Milly Garcia Talks Family

    In this week's episode, I talk about the most honored part of Catholic education, family.  Well, I don't talk about it much but I have one of St. Cecilia's legends, Milly Garcia, discuss what it means to her.  Milly just turned in her keys to St. Cecilia and retired this year.  I wanted to "get her on tape" to talk about her teaching experiences, advice for colleagues, and anything else that came up!  Best of luck with retirement Milly and remember you can always come back home if you get bored!

Outstanding

Outstanding because it’s personable and relatable to anyone who’s in education, has kids in school, and like episode 2 knows a retiring teacher- can’t wait for the next one!
