From TDT to TED!

I had to listen twice and read the transcript! I especially love the distinction between rescuer(TD) and coach (TED) and what that means for me, who can often get stuck in the “fix it” mentality. I’ve added a few new books to my reading list. Thank you!

Such practical tools

I really love the practicality and thoughtfulness which Elena Aguilar and her team bring to their work. I find these podcasts brief and useful. Education has been especially challenging lately and these words of wisdom help me to connect to what I love about working with teachers and students.

The Way to Start My Bright Morning

With my coffee and on my way to work, this is my go to podcast. Each episode I learn something new. We agreed to use one of the texts. When we met, I brought up the podcast. Another coach also listens to the podcasts and is a Friend of the Show, too.

We talked about the learning and how powerful it is. We talked about how to afford the membership because we want it! Look for us, we’re coming.
