Kids Are Powerful

Episode 060 - Erin Mohr teacher.jpg

"Kids are powerful" - Erin Mohr

When I first met Erin on "Meet The Teacher" night, I left her orientation wanting to go back to school. I was motivated to learn!

Think about it.

When a teacher can move parents to tears (tears of love and appreciation) after one encounter, you know your kids are in good hands. She truly cares and loves kids in way that is powerful. 

Erin teaches in the HSE school district, which is in Fishers, IN. And she has taught for 15 years. Listen as she discusses her teaching philosophy, tips for parents to engage more effectively in their kids learning, and the number one thing she believes stimulates significantly learning. 

Enjoy!

"Lead out of belief vs relief." -Andrew McPeak

In today's episode, I continue my conversation with Andrew McPeak discussing Marching Off The Map, the most recent book written by Dr. Tim Elmore and Andrew. The book is centered around understanding Generation Z - kids who are currently seniors in high school (born around 2000) and younger. Most of today's discussion is focused on how to effectively lead this new generation. Andrew gives some great tips on how to shift our thinking when it comes to engaging Gen Z. He also gives the most important leadership strategy for helping young people succeed. 

Andrew McPeak is a next generation researcher, speaker, and curriculum designer for Growing Leaders. He works with schools, universities, and sports teams on implementing Habitudes® as a teaching tool for life and leadership skills.

Growing Leaders, founded and led by Dr. Tim Elmore, is a global nonprofit that encourages and equips young adults to take on real-life opportunities and challenges in the classroom, in their careers, and in the community. They are the leading experts when it comes to understanding Generations Y and Z. Every aspect of their organization is aimed to equip educators, coaches, leaders, parents, and other adults to impart practical life and leadership skills to young adults that will help them navigate through life.
