    76. Human-First “Withness” with Jaz Ampaw-Farr

    76. Human-First “Withness” with Jaz Ampaw-Farr

    On episode 76 of the podcast, I’m talking with Jaz Ampaw-Farr about becoming united in your activism for your school community. When you work together, you can come up with even more ideas and ways to make an impact in your school. ⁠

    One of Jaz’s big dreams is to see a human first approach to the learning. What can we do to invite more empathy into this space? It’s about understanding that all are coming from completely different places in their personal lives, different energy levels, different struggles and privileges. And so we can’t assume that everyone will be able to pass their class by being taught in one standard fashion.⁠

    Jaz also talks about how educators will hold themselves back from being their full selves and from making mistakes. But in order to grow, we need to be willing to take risks. We have to put ourselves on the line to get to a better place.⁠

    75. Where Meaningful Educational Change Begins with Jeff Ikler

    75. Where Meaningful Educational Change Begins with Jeff Ikler

    On the show this week, I am talking with career and leadership coach Jeff Ikler. Jeff has worked for nearly 50 years to help students, teachers, and administrators acquire knowledge and find meaning in their work.
     
    Students need more agency and to be cared about by adults at school. Educators are at their best when they recognize that the things students go through and manage in their lives have a direct effect on their desire and ability to put academic work in. 
    If teachers want to shift their mindsets and start making those changes, there’s no reason it can’t be attempted at a school or district level. Not to mention, we discuss how students don’t need to be steered towards college as the only goal. What would happen if we took their needs and desires into account when it comes to them figuring out their future?

    73. Envisioning the Power of What People Can Do with Colin Hogan

    73. Envisioning the Power of What People Can Do with Colin Hogan

    Today, I am joined by Colin Hogan, Head of School at Learning Community Charter School. He began his career in education in 1999 teaching at the Academy of Communications and Technology and at the Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Day School in Chicago.  Colin has won numerous awards for teaching and was recognized as New Jersey History Teacher of the Year in 2013.⁠

    Colin reveals in our conversation that we don’t need to follow a specific way of doing in order to helping our students, we can and should improvise with our own ideas. Additionally, he talks about how his school implemented a student-to-student mentorship opportunity and a way for all teachers to get together.⁠

    72. Toss Out the Assumption That Your First Years of Teaching Will Be Miserable with Jeanne Wolz

    72. Toss Out the Assumption That Your First Years of Teaching Will Be Miserable with Jeanne Wolz

    In this podcast episode, I am talking with Jeanne Wolz about the myths and assumptions people hear about being a brand new teacher. ⁠

    Jeanne wants to add some fresh perspective into the “scariness” that could help educators re-frame that mentality. I hope that you’ll walk away with a new approach to this big adventure of school-based work.

Real Discussion, Not Just Back-Patting

Many podcasts are conversations between two people who agree about everything and just want to reinforce their existing perspectives. This is not one of those. Lindsay is not afraid to engage with new ideas and she invites her guests to speak openly on controversial topics. She is open-minded, kind-hearted, deeply curious and discerning. That rare combination opens the door to honest and valuable conversation - the world needs much more of that. Proud to be a guest on this podcast.

What a pleasure it was being a guest on Lindsay’s podcast. She asked some of the best, most thought-provoking questions ever, and I found myself sorely disappointed our interview came to an end. Time very well spent.
