We recorded this episode on Thanksgiving week, which had both Rachel and our guest, Brent Coley, in a mindset of gratitude. Tune in to hear how Brent is leading his school “back to better” after the pandemic and his perspective on why we remember our favorite teachers. You won’t want to miss this one!
Brent Coley began his career in education in 1996, teaching grades four and five for 15 years before transitioning into administration. He is currently in his ninth year as the principal of Alta Murrieta Elementary School in Murrieta, California.
Passionate about educational technology, Brent is always looking for new ways tech can engage students and families while increasing student achievement. While in the classroom, he promoted 24/7 learning through his math review videos and iPod flash cards, and his students shared their learning with the world through their daily blog and classroom podcast. In his leadership role, Brent strives to support teachers as they pursue excellence by integrating technology and taking risks in their classrooms.
A firm believer in the power of collaboration, Brent shares what he learns through Twitter (@brentcoley), his website at BrentColey.com, and at educational technology conferences. He is the author of the book Stories of EduInfluence and host of “Teaching Tales,” a podcast giving educators a platform to share their stories and experiences.
