Last week

Last week… by Katie Kinder Last week was busy; let’s be perfectly honest, every week is busy, but for this post, last week was extra, extra busy. I’m an Instructional Coach. People ask me, “What does that mean?” Well, it means a lot of different things to me. I teach the teachers, but more importantly, I serve the teachers because, as my good friend, and principal, Charles Williams, says, “If serving is beneath you, leading is beyond you!” If you are a principal, you should get his book; Inside The Principal’s Office, it is a good one. I’m of the

Are You Okay

Episode 2: Are you okay? Hey, folks. Erin here. The word of the day is VULNERABLE. Holy smokes. Recording this episode of our podcast was a doozy for me. 😳 Long story short, I have dealt with anxiety and depression for much of my life. But in neglecting my mental health for so long during my years teaching, I developed a really fun panic disorder that, as you can witness from listening, still rears it’s ugly head. Podcasts have been so beneficial to me and my personal mental health journey. Getting to hear people openly explore and share about things

Through events of the past few years, things have been illuminated that can no longer continue to be overlooked.
