Lift Up Leaders ,

Great resource for supporting school culture

I love the 15 minute timeframe and the wonderful ideas jam-packed into each episode! I hadn't heard of the Character Strong program, though I'll definitely be tuning in to learn more about it. I just listened to the Monday Morning Huddles episode and have so many great ideas to share with my building leaders- I already sent our middle school principal a link to the episode! :)
Great podcast to support the social-emotional needs of our students- As Houston says, it's not one more thing added to our plates- it IS the plate. Highly recommend!

So encouraging

I started listening to this after my district adopted Character Strong/PurposeFULL People. I have a H A R D group of students this year, but listening to this podcast on my morning commute (of 10-12 minutes) encourages my heart, envisions me for the day, builds hope in me for my students, and shifts some paradigms giving me more “low burden, high impact” ideas. I can’t recommend it enough!

It’s really well done

Every bite sized episode leaves me inspired and gets me thinking about how to be a better educator. It’s fun and energetic and also offers some big insights and paradigm shifts. It’s great for when you’re driving to work!
