Vicki is a teacher and an IT Director in a small school system in Camilla, Georgia, but she is connected through her writing, speaking, podcast, and social media content throughout the world! 

This is her 13th year teaching.

She writes regularly for the website Edutopia and Vicki can frequently be found as a national keynote speaker presenting on a multitude of topics.

She has an amazing blog, http://www.coolcatteacher.com/, where she expresses her thoughts about many different areas associated with teaching from technology to classroom management and many topics in between. She also connects the readers to many resources for helping with better teaching and school leading.

Vicki is engaging and overflowing with incredible ideas for making the classroom experience unforgettable.

After talking with Vicki, I couldn't stop talking to my team members about her inspiring words! 

I think that you will get just as energized.

Enjoy!

This is my third of an on-going conversation with Dr. Mark Wilson about his book in the works called iPrincipal. 

Check out our earlier talks at Episode 48 (The Introduction), and Episode 53 (Intentional). 

Also, you can find out more about Mark and his focus on leadership at Episode 8 as well as his website

The iPrincipal...today's fully prepared and highly effective principal is inspirational.

While the iPrincipal is expected to be an instructional leader (to be discussed in another episode), to lead effective schools, principals also need to be inspirational leaders.

Inspirational Principals excel in:

1. Seeing Connections
2. Sharing Ideas Clearly
3. Seeking Opportunities

I think that you will find Mark's thoughts engaging and thought provoking.
Enjoy!
