“When my kids get off the bus in the morning and when the teachers walk in the door, my mood, my face, and my attitude sets the tone for the day.”

Powerful, powerful episode with Heritage High School (VA) principal Shameka Gerald! She shares advice on developing processes systematically that serve ALL students, why her attitude and demeanor are so important to the daily climate of her building, how to raise the standard of expectations for both students and staff, how racial and equity issues can be properly addressed and improved, tips and strategies for improving attendance rates, and much, much more!
