252: Know Your Options

Do you know how many opportunities are out there for teachers? The opportunities are unlimited! You’ll find out something you don’t know- certifications, schools that are a better fit, and even more leadership options! I’m here to help teachers find missed opportunities and information while helping ideas and dreams become realistic. 


  • It’s hard to aspire to something you haven’t been exposed to 
  • Don’t fear losing good people at your school, fear losing them in your profession 
  • I want to be the lead of my own story
  • Our opportunities are not only black and white
  • Make it happen, do the work, chase the dream, try to step out

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.
