ELD Coach ,

Fantastic Show

I agree, this podcast will be downloaded by many. This podcast made me feel grateful and fortunate to work for a charter school, where our leadership has a direct impact on students and their needs. As an ELD Coach, I have the opportunity to build relationships with over 100 students across 5 school sites. I am required, as our Assistant Principals and other leadership, to get to know our students and get involved with student activities.

So You Think You Can Implement-The Often Ignored Science of Implementation

Great conversation with Dr. Caryn Ward. A wonderful walk through of what Implementation Science 'looks like' in practice. A concise overview that demonstrates how various frameworks are connected and lays the foundation for further exploration of this important topic. Thank you!
