Creating a Successful School Day
Through conversations that I've overheard, things I've seen on social media, and how I've felt personally it's easy to see that many educators are starting to feel overwhelmed and exhausted. The school year is long and offers many challenges. That is why it is important for all of us that we are deliberate in things that we do to try and set ourselves up for a successful school day. This episode dives into a few of the strategies.
The Power of Being in the Moment
The episode dives into the power of being present and the power that it can have in creating a positive day. We discuss three ways that we can work on being in the moment inside our classroom based off of Elaina Aguilar's book Onward: Cultivating Emotional Resilience in Educators. Mrs. Aguilar talks about three things that we can do to help stay present. She says being mindful, finding joy, and sharing laughter as ways that we can create a great day for ourselves. This episodes dives into these.

Lessons to Transform Your Classroom
Educators are always looking for ways to make their classrooms more impactful. This episode dives into lessons from the head coach of Clemson's football team Dabo Swinney. In this episode you will find lessons that he has used to transform Clemson from a football program that no one believed in to one of the premier programs in the country. These lessons have very little to do about football and so much to do with what we can do to bring out the best in our students.

The podcast is great. We all need to be reminded from time to time just how good life is. I must admit I am Brian’s uncle so am somewhat biased but I can say with all honesty that Brian is the real deal and always has been. Brian, keep up the great work and peace be with you.
We all love you and are very proud of the man you have become.
Keep on keeping on,
Brian is such an excellent communicator
I’ve met Brian, and he is in person exactly the way he is in this podcast: encouraging, optimistic, empowering. Everyone could use a weekly dose of Brian-level encouragement.
