121: Don’t Be Glib!

You can’t live out your potential and bless others if you are not living out your WHY. A future guest inspired me to help you avoid being “glib” because that doesn’t benefit you or those you serve. So tune in to hear what you can do today to put yourself on the right track to living a more purpose-filled life as an educator!


  • When you pour everything you have into something you do, it shows
  • If we all could just turn up the dial when its comes to being a learner and find more joy in the process we might just end up painting that masterpiece after all.
  • Why did you become an educator? Why do you remain an educator?
  • What is part of your fabric from which you operate?
  • Don’t just go through the motions. Find out what lights a fire under you and go do that
  • There’s a season for everything
  • That’s not my thing and I’m okay with it

About the author, Gretchen

I am a teacher trainer and coach. Working elbow to elbow with teachers and teacher leaders to ensure instructional proficiency and student achievement soar lights me up. We have a real need in our nation for strong educators to remain in the field. My blog, book, podcast, courses and instructional materials are geared towards empowering teachers (and those that lead them) to receive the support needed to grow and thrive today, tomorrow and always.
