Chalk Full of Information

I have listened to Mr. Parker’s podcast for over a year now. It’s has helped me grow as a leader. It has even influenced my own podcast (“Educate to Elevate” available on apple podcasts or SoundCloud) and provided a guide as to how I can grow and help others. Furthermore, I have even reached out to Mr. Parker for advice and he has been more than willing to help. So if you are interested in school leadership, this podcast, and host, is something you want to subscribe to ASAP.

A must listen!

This podcast is a treasure trove of information for school leaders. Will does an excellent job of delivering the content in a way that keeps you engaged and yearning for more. Not only does he teach good practices for educators but he does it in a way that is inspirational! He’s the best in the business of developing school leaders and just as genuine and passionate in real life as he is on the podcast!
