Coaches are in a weird purgatory- where's my identity?
With teaching, the stakes are always high
Listen, Listen, Listen
It's not about me. It's about what is best for kids.
What can my impact be?
Even tasteful leopard can be executed professionally
Equal parts accountability and follow up
Find your people/tribe/PLN...we all want to connect with somebody
Take your passion and make it happen
The space between....
