Leadership Isn't Funny Podcast
Inspire, motivate, learn and grow as an educator. As one of the largest statewide support networks for activity directors, our job is to promote and support student leadership and activities.
The Card Game Today's podcast features the talents of Richard Parkhouse. Park is a regular presenter at CADA, education conferences and schools all over the country. Today Park shares with us an activity we call "The Card Game." In this game, kids learn what it is like to be popular vs. unpopular - and in learning this difference - how kids and teachers alike can then work to make a change in the school culture. Whether ending your year and reflecting on your activities or starting your year with a retreat or inservice, this is a great activity to get your kids and staff thinking about their roles and the impact that each of them can have at school. This lesson connects with CADA Standards under Communication (8. Interpersonal Skills); Citizenship (3. Service Learning); and Personal and Social Development (Interpersonal).

Leadership Creates Opportunity Once again I visit with my mentor and friend Steve Southard.  As we have just passed the day of the teacher and staff appreciation week, this podcast is dedicated to the teachers who create opportunity for students to learn and grow during their time in school.  It is not often that you hear of a student who credits you or someone else at school with changing his or her life, but when you do, it makes this job worth every extra hour we spend at school.  Please enjoy the Bill Guissi story.
