Special Release – Audio Podcast of the Book’s Launch Party
In the coming weeks, the video version of the book’s launch party will be released. However, with the month anniversary today, I wanted to release the audio podcast version of the launch party for those interested in taking a listen and enjoying the amazing, raw, and authentic conversation we had with many of the book’s contributing case study and foreword author’s.
Summary of the Launch Party: In the final bonus episode of the Navigating the Toggled Term series, all of the contributing authors of Navigating the Toggled Term: A Guide for K-12 Classroom and School Leaders met for a launch party to celebrate the book as well as discuss the present and future of education. The book’s contributing authors all wrote short case study’s at the end of each chapter to illustrate and provide firsthand accounts as to how the themes of the chapters are being implemented by teachers and school leaders from across North America. Perspectives from case study contributing authors provided a lens to the schools and students they serve in urban, suburban, rural, private, and public settings. Additionally, we had teachers and school leaders in varying points of their careers from a first-year teacher to veterans who have been in the educational profession for over 30 years.
These various perspectives provided for powerful conversations and case study’s in the book as they provide diverse perspectives of how to navigate education now and in the future. The goal of the launch party’s conversations was to discuss the following five areas:
- 1) Instructional Innovations and EdTech Integrations
- 2) Challenges to Future Innovations
- 3) What have we learned in teaching and leading students and schools over the past 16 months (after March 2020) and how has that prepared us to navigate the future of education?
- 4) How can we best support teachers and school leaders?
- 5) What advice would you give teachers and school leaders as they navigate the upcoming school year and the future of education.
Overall, the conversation we had was inspiring, motivational, and empowering. If you are a teacher, school leader, parent, or a stakeholder in the educational community, this is a discussion that will inspire you along with giving you real practice strategies and advice to navigate education now and in the future.

Blog Post: Tackling the Challenges of the Present and Future of Education – Navigating the Toggled Term
In a blog post published on Peter Lang’s Medium blog, I discuss the challenges of navigating education during this time. However, I discuss primarily how we can at the institutional and personal level create opportunities for self-care. It’s a great read for classroom and school leaders to help provide a roadmap of how to take care of ourselves during the school year. It is a bit of a preview of what you will find within Chapter 12 of the book!
