In her free time, she loves spending time with her family and friends, attending her kids' activities, practicing yoga, and relaxing with a good book. Episode Notes: -Coaching is embedded professional development that is transformational. Coaching is supportive, it is being in community with one another, but also learning as a coach alongside the coachee. -Reflection starts with yourself. The coach needs to self-reflect and build a relationship to build space for vulnerability in order to do deep reflection. The things you ask your coachees to do, you should do every day as well. Use journaling and coaching conversations with yourself to do that reflection work. -Reflection with educators can be stretched with the conversation with a coach. There needs to be a lot of trust and relationships built to make this successful. What emotions are coming up for you? What did you feel like in the observation? What constitutes joy for you in teaching? - The 5 Whys - use these to deepen the reflection. -If you do not have a coach, you can use your team to reflect. You can even dig into the 5 whys with yourself. Try to elicit the reflection. Offer yourself grace and self-compassion. Try celebratory reflection! -Closeout conversations, having the space to reflect on their big wins or their goals for moving forward. These are so important to tie up the year and think through the areas that they felt that they were winning and trying to grow more in. Coaches can also do this for themselves on paper in order to reflect for themselves to become even more transformational as a coach. -Inspired Educators, Inspire Educators -When you think that you are having a teacher that you cannot reach, always go back to yourself and look at how you are showing up. And also look at how you started that relationship. What could have been done differently? How can it be restored, if needed?

On this episode, we're joined by Bob Krikac, an associate professor in the interior design program at Washington State University, and Shannon Spilker, 2019 Washington State graduate and participate in the interior design program at WSU. They share their experience working on a unique project called the SPLATT Table. The SPLATT Table is a student-led project aimed at creating a sense of belonging on campus by designing an equitable space that serves all users in equal proportion. Shannon was scouted by her professors along with eight other students from different disciplines at WSU in 2017 to work on the project. They started by brainstorming bench ideas but realized that benches are transitory places and didn't fulfill the prompt of creating a sense of belonging. So, they pivoted and decided to make a table instead. Since then, they've made six prototypes, conducted focus groups for ergonomics, tested anthropometrics for ADA and able-bodied users, and tweaked the design to accomplish the table's three main goals: to create an equitable space, facilitate concurrent small group interaction, and redefine belonging. The SPLATT Table achieves these goals by using radial symmetry, having no head of the table, and offering the opportunity to interact without the necessity to. It allows people to maintain their privacy while sitting in proximity to others, creating the possibility for surprising connections to be made. Sarah and Shannon have been committed to the SPLATT Table since their graduation, working alongside their faculty advisor, Bob Krikac, associate professor of Interior Design at WSU. They've learned valuable lessons in interdisciplinary collaboration and team building through their work on the project, which Shannon plans to incorporate in her future classroom as she pursues a Masters in Elementary Education. Bob Krikac, who was invited to participate in the formation of the group that eventually created the SPLATT Table, continues to collaborate with Sarah and Shannon as they work to bring this unique educational product to market. Tune in to this episode to learn more about the SPLATT Table, its design principles, and the team's journey in bringing it to life.

Our culture is selling a pack of lies to the next generation. Are your kids buying? Joining Catherine again in this episode is Elizabeth Urbanowicz, creator of Foundation Worldview, a Christian worldview curriculum for kids ages 14 to 4. Elizabeth has distilled the catalog of cultural falsehoods into a best-of list containing the top seven most prevalent lies being sold to our kids. They are: If I feel it, it must be true. Follow your heart. Love is affirming everything we feel. Faith is the opposite of knowledge. Humans are the products of blind, unguided evolution. You are the one you've been waiting for. A good God wouldn't judge. In this episode, Catherine and Elizabeth break down each lie and offer ways that you can teach your children to recognize them, reject them, and stand for what is true. We've got to know what these lies are if we want to help our kids not to fall for them. Elizabeth Urbanowicz holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Elizabeth created Foundation Worldview to equip Christian parents with the resources they need to train children to soundly interpret Scripture, carefully evaluate every idea they encounter, and understand the truth of the biblical worldview. Elizabeth firmly believes that the Christian youth exodus can be a thing of the past. When kids are equipped to soundly interpret Scripture, they will quickly develop a biblical worldview. And when kids are taught to think well, they can carefully evaluate the messages they are exposed to each day.

The Homeschool Advantage Podcast
Intro Elizabeth Founder of Foundation Worldview She holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Elizabeth began her professional career as an elementary teacher in a Christian school. Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. Elizabeth began searching for materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding any materials that met this need, she began creating a curriculum for her students. Elizabeth first taught Foundation Comparative Worldview Curriculum as an after-school class for third through fifth graders, and the results were incredible! Students were transformed from passive recipients of information to active evaluators of every message they receive. Parents and teachers alike noticed the impact these materials had on students' media consumption, academic achievement, and everyday habits. This transformation lasted beyond the elementary years and guided students' thinking in junior high and beyond. Top three takeaways Parents teach their children the foundation of the Christian worldview so their children can carefully evaluate every idea they are presented with through the lens of the truth of God's word. How Foundation Worldview equips children to carefully evaluate every idea they encounter and understand the truth of the biblical worldview. How their lessons engage children and guide their thinking through their program. Call to Action Foundation Worldview Website What is Next!

About pretty much everything, especially when it comes to the podcast, which she helps produce and market.No subject is off limits with us — race, mental health, family dynamics, gender identity, marriage, politics, social justice, you name it.And since we're both parents of young adults, we talk about that, too.So when I decided to launch this series amplifying the voices of GenZ and Millennials, I asked Jodi if she and her daughter, Colette, would join me on the podcast.Lucky for all of us, they said yes.What Drives Millennial Decision-MakingColette received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Houston in 2020 and is now a designer at the Houston architecture firm, Regan & Andre.Jodi has been working with me at Linda Lorelle Media for a little over three years.She has a Masters in Elementary Education & Teaching from Viterbo University and a Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.I was interested in talking with them after Jodi shared with me some of Colette's perspectives about her future, what is influencing her decision-making and the impact on Jodi as a loving parent who wants the best for her child.In some ways, it reminds of me conversations with my own Millennial daughter, but interesting, additional themes also emerged.Hope for the FutureAt the end of the day, I think these conversations are important because they help us better understand what each other is going through from a generational perspective.And from a human perspective.My generation is leaving a profoundly troubled world with existential consequences for the next generations to deal with.Sometimes it's hard for them — and for us — to have hope for the future.But we have to keep looking for it.I feel blessed to find hope in conversations like this one.Here's hoping you find it, too.www.ourvoicesmatterpodcast.comwww.lorellemedia.comThis podcast is devoted to empowering us all to better understand each other's differences...one story at a time. Emmy Award-winning journalist, Linda Lorelle, guides guests through insightful, unexpected conversations that reveal our common humanity. This show is not about politics per se; it is about finding a way to reclaim civility in the context of the contentious times in which we live, by sharing our personal and professional stories, in hopes that others might find a glimpse of themselves.Support the show
The Christian worldview is challenged like never before in American culture. With a majority of kids leaving the faith after they leave the nest, Christian parents need to prioritize establishing a biblical worldview in the lives of our children. Our kids can't keep what they don't own, and they can't own what they haven't received. But how do we teach our kids the Christian worldview? What foundational principles need to be covered and how do we break it down for young minds to grasp? Catherine's guest in this episode is an expert at teaching the Christian worldview to children. Elizabeth Urbanowicz holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. Elizabeth began searching for curricular materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding materials that effectively met this need, she created a curriculum that did. Foundation Worldview exists to equip Christian parents with the resources they need to train children to soundly interpret Scripture, carefully evaluate every idea they encounter, and understand the truth of the biblical worldview. Elizabeth firmly believes that the Christian youth exodus can be a thing of the past. When kids are equipped to soundly interpret Scripture, they will quickly develop a biblical worldview. When kids are taught to think well, they can carefully evaluate the messages they are exposed to each day.

Our guest today is Elizabeth Urbanowicz. Elizabeth is a follower of Jesus Christ who is passionate about equipping kids to understand the truth of the Christian worldview. She holds a B.S. from Gordon College in Elementary Education and Spanish, an M.S.Ed. from Northern Illinois University in Literacy Education, and an M.A. in Christian Apologetics from Biola University. Elizabeth began her professional career as an elementary teacher in a Christian school. She began her professional career as an elementary teacher in a Christian school. Several years into her teaching experience, Elizabeth realized that despite being raised in Christian homes, attending a Christian school, and being active in church, her students thought more like the culture than like Christ. Elizabeth began searching for curricular materials that would equip her students to think critically, helping them discover that Christianity is the worldview that lines up with reality. After not finding any materials that met this need, she began creating a curriculum for her students. Elizabeth first taught Foundation Comparative Worldview Curriculum as an after-school class for third through fifth graders, and the results were incredible! Students were transformed from passive recipients of information to active evaluators of every message they receive. Parents and teachers alike noticed the impact these materials had on students' media consumption, academic achievement, and everyday habits. This transformation lasted beyond the elementary years and guided students' thinking in junior high and beyond. Elizabeth now works full-time on developing comparative worldview and apologetics resources for children. Her goal is to prepare the next generation to be lifelong critical thinkers and, most importantly, lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with Elizabeth, and hope you'll be encouraged by her drive and passion to help parents teach their children to think critically with a Biblical perspective. Today more than ever we need this.

That ALL Might Be Edified: Discussions on Servant Leadership
It is an honor to have Alex Mestres as the guest on this episode. She uses her vast experience working with the deaf and hard of hearing community to talk about the importance of being present in all communication, both in what you say and in how you listen. We expose you to some content that is probably new to many of you, but that can expand and potenitally reframe the way you view communication in all of your organizations, teams, and many other settings. Using her expertise with the deaf and hard of hearing community we discuss the Servant Leadership attributes of listening, empathy, and community building. This episode will get you thinking about how much noise is in your environment that blocks good communication, what positive communication practice you put in the drawer for use later on, and how we allow others to process. One communication method will never reach everyone in our organization and it is only as we learn to communicate in a language that is authentic to all the members on our team that we truly can achieve great results. There is so many applications for the information contained in this episode if we open our ears and hearts to hear the full message. Alex Mestres was born and raised in Miami, Florida.

In this episode, we speak with Stephan Corbin and his mother Candace Wilkerson. A few months ago, with the help of Mac Beaton, Director of Workforce and Career Development, Stephan was able to have an interview with Colonial Web. Colonial Web is an installation, maintenance, and service of building mechanical and electrical systems or what is sometimes called an HVAC company. We speak with Stephan and Candace about how Stephan's life has changed since starting his career at Colonial Web. When Stephan was going to his local high school, they did not offer career and technical education programs to students. Listen to this podcast and discover how many of today's businesses, even without training from a CTE program, will train individuals to start lucrative careers. Having the benefit of experiencing a CTE program while in high school is preferred, and businesses will hire and continue the training necessary to become an expert in a trade but are willing to hire and train anyone with the drive to succeed. This is Stephan Corbin's story. Reshawn and I love working to bring you the Henrico CTE Now podcast. We would love to hear from you. Send us any questions you would like answered.

Since the previous discussion we had about dyslexia (episode 21), Dr. Lauren has continued her mission in supporting families by launching The Dyslexia Mom Boss Podcast. She is also a member of the ChildNEXUS community and she takes a family approach when working with students. Ultimately, it's not just about the child with dyslexia, but about the entire family and how to support each other. Show Notes: [1:44] - Dr. Lauren was a previous guest on the podcast and has since launched her own podcast called Dyslexia Mom Boss. [3:29] - Learning disabilities are not exclusive to the United States. They are a world issue. [5:12] - Dr. Lauren shares her own experiences with ADHD. Although she does not have dyslexia herself, her experiences with learning impacted her mission as an educator. [7:05] - Her first teaching job was working in a school for students with dyslexia. This was the start of her passion in helping this population of learners. [9:27] - There is a disconnect between what parents and educators know about dyslexia and the struggling child in the classroom. [10:22] - A huge problem is the access to reliable information. [12:02] - What is D3 and why does Dr. Lauren group these three learning disabilities together? [14:14] - More often than not, there is a comorbidity in children with dyslexia. [15:32] - Through the public school system, it could take a lot of time to discover learning disabilities, and delays in identification cause parents and children to become overwhelmed. [17:03] - Parent training and learning is also incredibly important in supporting dyslexic children at home. [18:05] - Dr. Lauren puts us in the shoes of a child with dyslexia. [19:15] - When one person in the family is struggling, it impacts the entire family. [21:54] - When your child is upset or struggling, your initial reaction is to make it better. [23:17] - Through her experience, Dr. Lauren has found that intervention sessions turn into listening to the concerns of the parents. [24:18] - Parents need to also pour into themselves and not solely focus on the unique needs of their child. [26:06] - The stressors of raising a child with struggles can have a negative impact on the marriage and relationship between parents. [27:20] - Our brains go to the negatives first. We have to actively change our mindset. [29:53] - Our thoughts have so much power in how we feel and how we behave. [31:40] - When there is so much focus on the struggle, it is easy to forget that these students have strengths too. [33:20] - There is no one curriculum for the dyslexic learner because everyone is completely different. [35:02] - In order to advocate for your child's needs, it is crucial to learn about dyslexia and how to support your child. About Our Guest: Dr. Lauren's passion for educating, advocating, and bringing awareness to dyslexia at the domestic and international levels began in the elementary classrooms of private schools serving students with language-based learning disabilities. She has been a certified Special Educator for over a decade, and she earned her Doctor of Education in Teaching, Learning, Leadership, & Curriculum in 2019 from Northeastern University and holds a dual masters in Special Education and Elementary Education from Syracuse University and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Syracuse University.

Routines and structure are important parts to a smooth and effective classroom, but when a routine involves students, engagement, and relationships, that's when it becomes an essential part of your day. This routine is known as morning meeting. While you may have heard of this before, my guest today, Shelly Small, provides more insight as she shares how to build a classroom community through morning meeting.
